1988 French Open final: Steffi v Zvereva. 6-0, 6-0.

2005 Masters Cup Semi-Final in Shanghai:

Roger Federer d. Gaston Gaudio 6-0, 6-0

Chrissie over Martina 6-0, 6-0 1981 Amelia Island (interestingly, Martina won 6-2, 6-0 at the same tourney in 1984 - part of Martina's 13 match winning streak in that period)
