pretty old match but at that time Gaudio was #10 of the world and was playing one of his best seasons. Did that punishment ever happen again to a Top 10 player? I remember Berdych being slendered by Goffin some years ago if I am not wrong but I do not know if he was still in top 10.

Best regards

some other close calls

Berdych vs Djokovic Beijing 2014. Djokovic served for the match at 6-0 *5-0 but was broken, and closed it 6-0 6-2
Federer vs Murray World Tour Finals 2014 Murray serving at 6-0 5-0 30-15* down
Anderson vs Nishikori ATP finals 2018. Kei held at 6-0 5-0 down to avoid a double bagel :eek: one of his worst matches I've seen.

I don't quite recall Berdych's play hampered by injury in that one against Goffin. It's highly unlikely that he was in good shape physically, but it simply looked like one of those extremely bad days for him, and David was pretty terrific (and often very lucky too). Berdych actually had three BP chances, all of which he wasted of course.

... Lendl hilariously gave Connors the mother of all beatings when he humiliated him 6-0,6-0 during their semi-final clash at Forrest Hills in 1984


Lendl won 51 points to Connors 16


Connors was also the Number 1 seed for the tournament :haha::haha::haha::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

Getting double bagelled by big Goffin on clay is an underrated achievement that I rarely hear mentioned when people talk about Berdych.

The contrast between relaxed and slightly surprised Goffin and sweating, defeated Berdych who looks like he wouldn't mind retiring right on the spot is hilarious.
