World No 243 Rui Machado pulled off a remarkable 'double-bagel' victory against Dmitry Tursunov at the Portugal Open in Oeiras.

The Portuguese wildcard broke 32-ranked Tursunov six times and restricted him to just seven points on his own serve as he completed a 6-0 6-0 rout in just 47 minutes.

Russia's Tursunov was unable to explain his collapse, saying: "I felt like a fish on land. I need to think hard about the state of my tennis and make some serious adjustments. I hope no one has to live through a match like that again."
