Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 16, 2004

Roger Federer snagged the 2004 Golden Bagel Award™ at the ATP Tennis Masters Cup in Houston, Texas. Federer is the first recipient of this irreverent new award, presented to the men's pro tennis player who serves up more "bagels" (sets won 6-0), than any other player.

"I think I need some cream cheese with that," Roger Federer said on inspecting the full-sized golden-dipped bagel. Presenters asked the World's Number One player if he knew how many bagels he had served during the course of the year. "Six?" Federer guessed. No, he was told, you gave out 12 bagels. "What!" he exclaimed.

The rest of the top eight players gathered in Houston for the Tennis Masters Cup administered the following bagels during the course of the year: Guillermo Coria 7, Andy Roddick 4, Lleyton Hewitt 4, Tim Henman 4, Gaston Gaudio 4, Marat Safin 3 and Carlos Moya 3.

About Golden Bagel Award™

The Golden Bagel Award™ is presented to the player - among the Top 8 ATP singles players at the Tennis Masters Cup - who wins the most 6-0 sets between January 1 and the start of the season-ending Masters event. Davis Cup matches and incomplete sets are not counted. The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) website is used as the definitive data source.

In the event of a tie, the number of "fries" (6-1 sets) will determine the winner. "It's all in good fun," said award presenter Tom Suhler, "And if there's still a tie after the fries are counted, we'll cut the thing in half and have a laugh."
