And this is exactly what occurred in a televised match at the M15 event in Doha.

Thailand’s Krittin Koaykul defeated Ukraine’s Artem Bahmet 6-0, 6-0 and won every point to achieve the incredible feat in 22 minutes.

But when tournaments don’t fill a qualifying draw, they can open it up to paid entrants with an ITF membership or an International Player Identification Number.

But Koaykul probably couldn’t believe his fortune in the first round of qualifying when Bahmet strolled onto the court and nearly just as quickly walked back off.
