Bagels eaten in their prime by the great players...

I think the only bagel was the one in that famous RG 2008 final against Rafa. Any other?

How about other great players, not necessarily still playing the game?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

Rogi's collection of bagels only needs an outdoor one. Hopefully come the US that fault is rectified.

Re: Bagels eaten in their prime by the great players...

Tokyo final was a extra tasty bagel for Nadal last year, a bagel with only 4 sprinkles for Nadal (he won 4 points )

Soderling in his prime was bageled by Nadal, only a few weeks before reaching the RG final.

Re: Bagels eaten in their prime by the great players...

Is Nadal like the only top 3 player in history who gets bageled so often (for a top player)? If so, what a mug

He got bageled three times in 2011 Really Nadal?
