The number of times a player is bagelled must surely be a reflection of their temperament and mental approach to the game, and their (in)ability to cope once they get down in the score, so does anyone know who has been bagelled most often in recent times?

My own nomination goes to Gaston Gaudio, who has experienced the following bagels in his short career:

1997
1. Razvan Sabau (ROM) 4-6, 0-6
2. Andrea Gaudenzi (ITA) 0-6, 2-6
3. Wolfgang Schranz (AUT) 4-6, 0-6

1998
4. Hector Moretti (ARG) 4-6, 0-6
5. Alberto Martin (ESP) 2-6, 6-1, 0-6

1999
6. Cedric Pioline (FRA) 4-6, 0-6
7. Hernan Gumy (ARG) 0-6, 1-6

2000
8. Alex Corretja (ESP) 0-6, 6-3, 6-3*
9. Thomas Enqvist (SWE) 3-6, 2-6, 0-6
10. Andrei Stoliarov (RUS) 3-6, 0-6
11. Franco Squillari (ARG) 7-6, 5-7, 0-6
12. Andrei Pavel (ROM) 4-6, 6-4, 0-6

2001
13. Michel Kratochvil (SUI) 0-6, 3-6

2002
14. Fernando Vicente (ESP) 0-6, 6-3, 6-2*
15. Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) 0-6, 6-1, 6-7, 7-5, 4-6
16. Todd Martin (USA) 6-2, 6-3, 0-6, 7-5*
17+18. Jan-Michael Gambill (USA) 0-6, 2-6, 0-6

2003
19. Rainer Schuettler (GER) 6-7, 0-6
20. Juan Carlos Ferrero (ESP) 7-5, 0-6, 2-6
21. Guillermo Coria (ARG), 3-6, 7-6, 0-6
22. Jean-Rene Lisnard (FRA) 0-6, 6-7
23+24. Juan Carlos Ferrero (ESP) 4-6, 0-6, 0-6

2004
25. Dominik Hrbaty (SVK) 1-6, 5-7, 0-6
26. Guillermo Coria (ARG) 0-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 8-6
27. Guillermo Canas (ARG) 7-5, 2-6, 0-6, 6-1, 3-6

2005
28. Rafael Nadal (ESP) 0-6, 6-0, 6-1
29. Rafael Nadal (ESP) 3-6, 0-6
30. David Ferrer (ESP) 0-6, 1-6
31. Tomas Berdych (CZE) 5-7, 0-6


* Note that these are the only times where Gaudio has had to endure the humiliation of a bagel and yet come back to win the match, the first two against Spaniards in Spain. And my, how important that fourth one was....

Can anyone find a player who exceeds the dizzy bagelling heights of old Gaston?

I don't know if any player can exceed this, but I like it when Marat bageled the potato in the Bercy final.

*bump, to complement the thread highlighting the number of Gaudio bagels in recent years*
