I mean. He can make it as he is very king and in next game he can occasionally get serious injury and lost match)))
Example his opponent if his best friend. What will be better in this situation?

I say: no frendship or mercy in proffessional sport. If you can win a golden set - do it.

Counting in tennis is constructed in this way that it can become 6-0 6-0 5-4 from 6-0 6-0 5-0 in a blink of an eye. So yes - break the serve and go home. Of course I put up an extreme example, but also a triple bagel is very rare (happened only 5 times in Grand Slams in history, the last one in 1993)

Federer definitely gifted Murray a game to avoid the double bagel at the WTF.

"At the end I was happy I didn't win the second to last game to be quite honest. Yeah, it's uncomfortable. I don't know. I don't like it." [source]

It is for me patronisations , behaviours of false manifestations , for allowance of game in this moment

For me I think not only , but 99.9%

Most players are probably going to relax a bit anyway to save energy once they win the first set easily and see they can do whatever they want without risk of losing the match.

Is this even a question? If you can triple bagel someone, hell yeah you do it. And afterwards you make him pay your beer.

Showing mercy can shift momentum and cost you the match. Heck, it might even be arrogant to think that at the given score line, you've got the victory secured. After all, you still need to win 2 points more than the opponent in at least one more remaining game.
