What does “bagel girl” mean in tennis?

I encountered term bagel girl in connection with a tennis player. I understood approximately the meaning of this term from the context, but could some clarify it in more detail? Is there also male equivalent for this colloquial term?

“Bagel girl” is a derogatory term for a woman who frequently loses tennis sets 6-0. The stereotypical bagel girl is a young woman from a wealthy family who has enough money to keep traveling the world and entering professional tournaments, even though she has no chance of winning at that level.

The term comes from both the fact that a bagel is shaped like a zero and from a racial stereotype.

I’m not aware of a male equivalent of this term.
