^I just laughed when I saw this thread. There is no easy way to find this answer out, talk about a tough question.

:lol:

The OP needs to be a little more specific, like in ATP Masters events within the top 20..etc.

But, it is a tough one, I can't wait for the answer.

I remember Federer bagelng Hewitt in tiebreak in USO semis 2005 and Blake bageling Nadal in tiebreak 2 years ago in Masters Cup(Blake was playing some best tennis of his life then).I also seem to remember Mahut bageling Nadal in tiebreak last year in Queens but I'm not sure about that one.Edit:I checked Mahut did bagel Nadal in tiebreak last year in Queens.So that's 3 times I remember.

a little bit off topic but I remember this tiebreak where Jan Siemerink had 6 set or maybe even matchpoints against and still won it 8-6.

I know it isn't last 2 or 3 years but Sampras bagelled Agassi in a tiebreak at the AUS Open semis in 2000 and still lost the match. Some of the best tennis I have seen in that breaker.

Federer bagelled Nadal in a breaker in the Rome final last year and lost the match.

This happens all the time doesn't it? It would take ages to figure this stat out. And what would we gain?

Federer was not in the final last year in Rome.

??
I was at that match, there was a tiebreak but both players won points.

Also, i don't ever remember Federer tiebreak-bagelling Rafa in Rome or anywhere else, maybe I'm wrong.

I don't remember 7-0 tiebreaks in Rome match either but I'm dead sure Federer won the second set tiebreak 7-0 against Hewitt in USO 2005 semifinal,maybe you meant the USO 2004 final were there was also a tiebreak?

You're right, i looked it up and Federer did tiebreak-bagel Hewitt, I remembered it differently. So many tennis matches my mind is filled with a zillion points.

Something I think is strange with the ATP stats, is that when you look at a players playing activity, they list a 7-0 tiebreak score as 7-6 (7).
But for head-to-heads, they list it as 7-6 (0).

For example Baghdatis vs ToJo at the Australian Open this year:

I checked 2 sources which both showed Federer winning the first set in a breaker 7-0.

James Blake also bageled Rafa 7-0 in the tie break at the TMC in 2006 off the top of my head.

Yeah,that was when Blake was playing amazing tennis and reached I think 4th place in the world.Mahut also bageled Nadal in tiebreak last year in Queens.

I love how Nadal is on the receiving end of most of the ones mentioned in this thread. I won't stir the pot though.

I also love how Federer is on the "giving" end of most of the ones mentioned in this thread ;)
I won't stir the pot as well.

Not the last two years either, actually 15 years ago!

Chang bagelled Sampras in the first tiebreaker of the 1993 US Open quarterfinal, and Chang went on to lose that match.

Clearly the message is not to bagel someone in a breaker, I know Brad Gilbert believes in that sort of philosophy, not getting your opponent too upset and fired up.
