anyway, graf is the only other player i can think about who won a lot of bagel sets - most famously at the 1988 french open final, which, i believe, is the only grand slam final won by a double bagel. overall, she didn't play (and by extension, win) as many matches and tournaments as evert and navratilova (though she did win a few more slams). so i'm not expecting her numbers to be as high in terms of number of bagel sets won. but percentage-wise, i think she could be just as impressive.

Just correcting the factoid. That drubbing happened in 1984 three years hence not the next year. Martina had three victories on clay vs Evert out of 11 meeting. In fact the greatest disparity percentage by surfacebetween the two, is not grass or carpet but clay. All three victories were very convincing and two were in '84.
