Bad show by Medvedev at the Metz tournament and the match lost against Wawrinka. The Russian tennis player did discuss for a reaction to be forgotten to the boos of the fans.
It’s not a particularly bright time for Daniil Medvedev. The Russian tennis player after the defeat against Kyrgios in the round of 16 of the US Open, returned to the field on the indoor French hardcourt in the Metz tournament. However, things did not go well for the former world number one, who seems to be going through a difficult moment, also confirmed by his nervousness.
In fact, the Moselle Open has already ended for Medvedev, fourth player in the ATP ranking and seeded number one. The Russian tennis player who perhaps paid duty to the pressure following the lead in the ranking, then lost badly, was defeated in three sets by the evergreen Wawrinka, current number 284 in the ranking and in search of the best physical shape after a series of injuries that for a long time they have prevented us from playing continuously.
Medvedev drives the fans crazy
A not brilliant match that of Medvedev who, after losing the first set, was about to capitulate in the second when he canceled a match point. Once the speech of the partials was tied, the Russian seemed to have the inertia of the confrontation of his side, also because Wawrinka is no longer a boy, with his physical conditions certainly not as brilliant as in the good old days. And instead the Russian after recovering from 0-3 has experienced a new blackout then losing the match 6-3 in almost two and a half hours of play and greeting the chance to reach the quarterfinals..
In addition to the debacle, however, it is above all a situation that took place right at the start of the third set to be discussed, with Medvedev who literally lost his head. It all started after an angry reaction to a mistake: Daniil threw his racket to the ground, to vent his frustration. At that point the audience booed him and there was no shortage of “buu”, a situation that sparked the wrath of the tennis player who started making fun of the fans, making a noise and then putting his hands under his armpits simulating the behavior of monkeys.CopyAMP code
A repeated behavior, and also accompanied by words that are anything but nice, with Medvedev who also brought an index on his temple as if to say “you are crazy”. Needless to say, the French public at that point caught him with greater insistence. Moments of confusion with Wawrinka who tried to calm everyone, inviting the spectators to silence with a gesture. In short, when Medvedev plays there is no way to get bored.
