No player has achieved a "triple-bagel" in a Grand Slam since Sergi Bruguera did just that to Thierry Champion at Roland Garros in 1993, and Basilashvili's blushes were spared when he took the sixth game of the second set. Seeded losers in the men's third round: No. 10 David Goffin, No. 11 Grigor Dimitrov, No. 16 Lucas Pouille, No. 25 Steve Johnson.
