Hello and thanks for visiting thedoublebagel blog!
Bagel, in tennis jargon, means losing a set without scoring a single game. Double bagel means losing two sets, and in most cases, losing the whole match without scoring a single game. Serving up double bagels are fun but being on the receiving end of it surely hurts.
I decided to call this blog “the double bagel” simply because I feel extremely pleased when my favorite players dominate their matches and serve them up. However, I will not only be talking about the Andys and Marias of my life but everyone and everything that goes on in and around the ATP and WTA tours. From on court geniuses to off court misfortunes, you’ll find them all here.

Here’s a bit about me so you don’t draw weird faces in your head when you read my entries.
I’m Maria, a photographer (slash) blogger (slash) professional tennis fan from Los Angeles. Yup, we like our slashes here. I’ve been following the sport since I was a young and became absolutely hooked in 2003. I kinda play and I love it. I started thedoublebagel after I realized how uninterested my friends were of the constant tennis rants on my personal blog. I have no idea how they go on with life without the tennis.
Hope you enjoy reading!
