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 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
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 :)
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
- Maria Sharapova won her first two matches at 2013 Australian Open 6-0, 6-0. In the third round she won the first four games in the match against Venus Williams. (Sources: 1.) Which makes it 28 consecutive games in total. (Australian Open was her first tournament in 2013. She lost her last match in 2012.) See also: Once In A Lifetime For Sharapova at WTA website; Australian Open 2013: Maria Sharapova hands out heavy defeat to hapless Venus Williams - The Telegraph.
- Wendy Turnbull won 6-0, 6-0 in the first two rounds at 1985 French Open. She lost in the third round 3-6, 4-6 to Hana Mandlíková. This means at least 24 consecutive games and at most 27 consecutive games. (She lost her last match at the preceding tournament in Sydney. See here.)
- Wikipedia article Shortest tennis match records lists triple bagel games (double bagel for women) at Grand Slams. However, these lists may be incomplete.
