Default Winning the set while receiving a hidden bagel

Does anyone know examples of players receiving a `hidden bagel' but still winning the set? That is, leading 5-0, then losing 6 games in a row to trail 5-6, before closing out the set 7-6.
I'm wondering how often this happens.

In theory this player could also lose 7 straight points in the tiebreak (6-0, 6-7, 9-7 or more) but that is pushing it.

I have given this some serious thought, but I have come up empty. I cannot think of a single incident. That doesn't mean it never happened, of course, but it is certainly not something you see often.

It has just happened in Oeiras qualies, if DNC got the result right:

There was a MTO between sets.
"Hidden-baggeled" and still winning the set.

Fabio Fognini managed an unusual double, in getting a proper bagel and winning the set after receiving a hidden bagel just now. 6-0, 3-6, 7-6(3) after having been seen *5-0 in the 3rd become *5-6 before holding for a TB.
