v.Gloss: To score no points. Note: The noun “bagel” has long been used in tennis and other sports to mean “zero.” «As usual after a defeat, Venus was tight-lipped, offering platitudes but no explanation as to what happened, especially in the first set when, as they say in tennis, she got bageled.» —“Clijsters looks refreshed while hobbled Venus might be nearing end” by Art Spander in New York City Sept. 6, 2009.
