ChabDog’s Aussie Open Conversation Openers (Men’s Singles, Day 6):
— Well looky here … another White Russian advances as red hot Rublev rubs out Goffin.
— Clad in punishing pink, Rafa pounds on Pablo, then cruises home for some late night paella.
— Gangly Querrey looks like a bit of a shrinky dink, as he gets sandbagged by rock solid Sandren.
— Fabio finds himself on the fast track to Round 4 with a pillorying of Pella.
— For those unlucky enough to have missed it, favored Fed barely escaped a monumental melee with Millman.
— Monfils gobbles up Gulbis, then leaves without paying the check.
— Sturdy Thiem blisters Fritz with a daisy-chain blitz of backhand bombs,
— Mighty Milos wasn’t about to let Tsitsipas get a pass … or a break for that matter.
