The former world leader lost the first set, but restored the tie after winning the second in the tie-break and seemed the favorite to win the decider. Things didn’t work out that way, however, and the Swiss Wawrinka prevailed after almost two and a half hours of play and will play for a place in the semifinals in Metz against Mikael Ymer (100 ATP).
Daniil Medvedev imitated the gestures of a monkey, addressing the audience
In the deciding set, with the score 2-0 in favor of Wawrinka, Medvedev committed an unforced error and, out of nerves, dropped the racket. The audience reacted immediately and started booing the Russian, who got angry and made an extremely ugly gesture.
Daniil Medvedev imitated a monkey to “take revenge” on the French spectators, who continued to whistle him profusely.
It is not the first time that Medvedev has a duel with the spectators. Throughout this year’s Australian Open he contracted with the fans from Antipozi and the dissensions did not stop even in the final. Then, in August, in Montreal, he was eliminated in the second round by Nick Kyrgios, and the public “charged him”.
While leaving the arena where he performed in Montreal, the fans called Daniil Medvedev “loser”.. Although most athletes prefer to ignore critics, the Russian did not.
The moment he heard what the fans were chanting, Medvedev stopped the way he was walking and turned to them and started talking to them. On the images that appeared online, it was not possible to hear exactly what Medvedev communicated to the angry fans, but it is certain that they stopped being offended.
After that, Daniil Medvedev went to the locker room, leaving the security team at the arena to handle the problem.
