Saw these past few days that in the Australian Open 2013 Sharapova went two matches without dropping a single game. I'm wondering if there is any official record on the longest streak of sets/matches a player played without dropping a single game.

  • What is the record for most consecutive games won? at manstennisforums.

  • Wikipedia articla on wiinning streaks lists this record: Most consecutive game wins (men): 25 games - 1993 Sergi Bruguera, However, no reference is given there. And no record for women's tennis is listed there.

What better place to start looking than to find the one of the most dominant player in tennis ever - Esther VERGEER :) I found this link and just did a quick scan (there could be longer ones I was hasty) and found from

2009 Invacare World Team Cup - Women's Event 27 Jul - 02 Aug 2010(I am guessing it's 2009 not 2010 possible typo by the web admin part)


Mercedes Open Utrecht, Netherlands 04 Aug - 09 Aug 2009

She went

eleven sets (five and half matches) without dropping a single game.

Of course this was only a quick search not an official one. Lets see how long this stand :)

  • I'm sure Esther Vergeer, "the most dominant player in tennis ever," is merely an opinion (and not to say I disagree). Otherwise, good work with the research and let's see if anything else comes in.

    If the field is limited to wheelchair women's singles then it's a pretty good opinion :) Jan 23, 2013 at 15:26

    @user1655072 She didn't loose a single match in more than 10 years. She retired this month, with 470 consecutive wins (see wiki page)

  • If Vergeer's matches meet the criteria then I'd say that's the answer for sure. I'm positive nobody in professional men's or women's tennis has gone 11 sets without losing a game. No way.

For questions like this, one possible approach is to make a community-wiki answer, where several users can contribute if they find some relevant records.

Grand Slams - Men

  • Sergi Bruguera won his second round match at 1993 French Open 6-0, 6-0, 6-0. He won also his first round match in straight sets and he won the third set 6-0. From these results alone we can see that he won at least 25 consecutive games. (Four bagel sets in a row and the last game in the preceding set.) Bruguera went on to win the tournament.
  • Karel Nováček won his second round game at 1987 French Open 6-0, 6-0, 6-0. He also won his first round match in the straight sets and he won the last set of that match 6-0. This means winning at least 25 games in a row.

Grand Slams - Women

Useful links

  • Wikipedia article Shortest tennis match records lists triple bagel games (double bagel for women) at Grand Slams. However, these lists may be incomplete.
