Did you notice, all but one, have been on the ‘top 5 in the world’ list?

Most humiliating ‘bagel’ eating moments:

1. Hewitt’s drubbing at the 2004 US Open final – 6-0, 7-6(3), 6-0.
Hewitt was world number 2 at the time. How good do you have to be to destroy a world no. 2 with two bagels, at a Grand Slam final? Incredible!!!

2. Gaudio Gaston’s total annihilation at the 2005 Shanghai semi-final -6-0,6-0.
This is got to be a career-ending game for you. I mean, you are a professional tennis player, who has practised day in and day out for this. And you can’t even win, one game out of 12. How can you show up on the court after this?

3. Roddick’s dismantling at 2007 Australian Open semi-final – 6-4,6-0,6-2.
Excellent example of ‘let your work do the talking’. Roddick kept on and on about how the gap between him and Federer is closing, gap is narrowing, gap is getting ‘whatever’, for months. Federer’s answer: GAP THIS!!! Roddick didn’t have the guts to come out for the press conference after the match, after getting his foot shoved down his throat. The only reason he came out was to avoid the fine. What a lesson in tennis – and life.

Total number of guest so far: 40.

Year with the most successful party, so far: 2006. 18 guests, some with multiple helpings. Will 2007 be a blockbuster party?
