Karen Khachanov scored double bubble wins.
Khachanov conquered Alexander Bublik on court twice today.
First, the 11th-seeded Russian beat Bublik 6-4, 6-4 in the Western & Southern Open first round.
Then Khachanov beat Bublik on the basketball court.
“The match finished,” Khachanov said. “He actually took it easy. He was not pissed, maybe, after the match, and he just asked me if I want to play one or two games in basketball.
“I destroyed him there, as well, so, you know, he goes home with 2-0 down.”
Meanwhile, Khachanov moves on to meet Pablo Carreno Busta in round two.
