The Golden Bagel Award is an award established in 2004 that honors the professional male tennis player who has handed out more "bagels" (sets won 6–0), than any other player on the circuit.[1][2] Roger Federer holds the all-time record for most bagels in a single season with 18 going into the Tennis Masters Cup, and a total of 19 in 2006.

About the award[edit]

To qualify for the award, a player must be ranked in the top 8 or play in the year-end ATP World Tour Finals. The winner is the one who captures the most bagels between January 1 and the start of the ATP Finals. Davis Cup matches and incomplete sets are not counted. The Association of Tennis Professionals website is used as the definitive data source. Since 2007, in the event of a tie, the number of 'fries/breadsticks' (6-1 sets) determines the winner.[3]
