Daniil Medvedev couldn’t keep his temper in his match against Christopher O’Connell at the US Open. The Russian shouted and insulted the fans sitting in the stands. He even attacked the camera. Why did the Russian act like this?

Daniil Medvedev faced Christopher O’Connell in the second round of the US Open. Medvedev was the favorite of the match and played perfectly for the first two sets. In the third set, Medvedev played slightly worse and O’Connell began to catch up. The Russian couldn’t stand it.

Medvedev is known for his explosive nature. He has already lost his composure in previous editions of the US Open. What did he do this time? Medvedev shouted and insulted a group of supporters who he felt were too loud. The tennis player told them to shut up and asked if they were stupid. The Russian also hit the camera of the live broadcasters. It bothered him that he was being filmed. The most controversial situation occurred after the third set. Medvedev asked for medical help, and when a medic approached and asked the Russian about his symptoms, the tennis player replied that he had just lost the third set, so he asked to give him what had been given to his opponent earlier to make him play so well.

Despite a nervous situation in the third set, Medvedev managed to win the fourth set and the match. Today the Russian will play in the 1/8 finals against Alex De Minaur.
