Maria Sharapova took the court Tuesday at 11 a.m. in Paris to begin her 2012 French Open against Alexandra Cadantu. She walked off 48 minutes later, dropping a double bagel on the young Romanian. It was the fourth such scoreline of Sharapova's career. Interestingly, the previous three had all come against American players, including that famous 2005 drubbing of world No. 1 Lindsay Davenport at Indian Wells.

What does the stats from a 6-0, 6-0 match look like? Not that much different than a 6-2, 6-2 match, to be honest.

Those are the first four stats listed on the official Roland Garros site and they provide no indication of the drubbing that took place. It takes a little longer to get to those numbers.

What's most amazing about those numbers aren't Cadantu's zero winners. It's that she actually had three break-point chances against the dominant Sharapova.
