RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) - Australia's John Millman made history Saturday (Aug 6) when he became the first player in Olympic Games tennis history to record a "double bagel" 6-0, 6-0 win.

The 27-year-old Millman swept past Ricardas Berankis in just 50 minutes to complete a miserable summer for the Lithuanian player.

At Wimbledon in June, Berankis, 26, was knocked out in the first round by Britain's world number 772 Marcus Willis, a club professional.
