Simply outstanding effort from Robin, I can't find the last time Max was bageled on ANY surface let alone indoors.

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Robeen

Federer's best effort in any set against Max in 10 whole matches was 6-2 and Robin outdoes that in two sets!

I thought he might sneak a win but :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

Max injured or something? :scratch:

Deboogle!.

He's gotta be. As I said in the scoring thread, Soderling ain't THAT good.

I just looked back at Mirnyi's results throughout his whole career.

Unless my eyes missed something, which unfortunately they may well have done, Mirnyi has never been baggeled till now.

:eek: He has recieved plenty of 1-6 sets but this is his first taste of a bagel.

You've had a stick up your ass ever since Murray beat Roddick. He has more talent than Roddick and Hewitt combined, JUST DEAL WITH IT.

Woah woah, atleast post 50 more times before talking like you have a clue. Obviously you don't.

Unbelievable! He must have been injured surely, otherwise Murray had best hope he doesn't get to play Soderling this week!!

I think he was injured otherwise i can not believe he could just hold serve 1 only time with that big serve of his

What happened to Mirnyi's serve. Amazed he could lose it that often.

Monte Carlo TMS, Monaco
Tennis Masters Series, 16-Apr-01, O, Clay , Draw: 64

R64 Haas, Tommy (GER ) 18 0-6 1-6

R64 Haas, Tommy (GER ) 8 2-6 0-6


No surprise that two of those were at the hands of Haas - he has the most incredible record against Mirnyi, not just in matches won but in the total ease of the scorelines - no fewer than 7 sets won against him by a 6-2 margin. Ironically enough, Mirnyi finally got on the board against him at this very tournament in the semis last year.

Awww. I missed three?

I'm not surprised I missed at least one but I'd of hoped my eyes would serve me better than that. Oh well.

Well, for some reason the ATP site doesn't have the 0 when the results are from the losing player's perspective: hence any bagel they receive simply goes down as a -6, which may well be harder to detect. Did you know that his demolition at the hands of Johansson in Hamburg came right after he had upset Kuerten in the first round? Ah, the vagaries of clay-court tennis.... somehow Tojo actually made the quarters in Hamburg that year (beating Gambill in the 3rd round!), where Ferrero dispatched him routinely.

Yeah, I hate that. I went back to '04 and didn't see any but figured he had many years on the tour and was surely bageled in his younger years.

Even Federer wasn't that good when he first came up.

he must've been sick. poor max; he's such a class guy.

Something must have been wrong with Max. He shouldnt be losing like that to anyone, much less Soderling.

Maybe Max was serving at 10 per cent of 1st serves or had food poisoning.

The Toad is quite good indoors, but not to the level of losing 1 game in the match.

This is what Robin said: I played one of my best matches ever. I returned really well and served really well," Soderling said.

so maybe Max was ok but Robin just played awesome :scratch:
