word o’the day – bagelling

Kenin, who began the year ranked No. 15 in the world, is a twenty-one-year-old who hadn’t yet won a match on the W.T.A. tour when Muguruza won Wimbledon. But she rose steadily through the rankings in 2018, and last summer she scored upset wins over Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka, and Ashleigh Barty. In the fourth round in Melbourne, she dropped the first set to Coco Gauff, who had a full stadium roaring for every point she won and every error Kenin made. Kenin fed on it, or seemed to: she won the match going away, bagelling Gauff in the final set.

past participle. bagelled or bageled. DEFINITIONS1. 1. to beat someone by six games to nil in a set of tennis.
