Daniil Medvedev Complains as Stefanos Tsitsipas’ Father was “Talking Way Too Much” at Australian Open 2021
It’s time for the second semi-finale at the Australian Open 2021 and Daniil Medvedev is up against Stefanos Tsitsipas. With World No.1 Novak Djokovic already in the finals, it’s a battle of who will face him in the finals of the tournament. Both the next-gen players are in great form and are fighting hard to play their maiden Australian Open final.
Daniil Medvedev established an early lead over his opponent Stefanos Tsitsipas. He even won a break and is looking solid in the match so far. However, there is one thing that worried him in the match.
In the third set of the semi-final of the Australian Open 2021, Medvedev went to the chair umpire James Keothavong and had a chat. Interestingly, it was about Tsitspas’ father and coach Apostolos Tsitsipas.
The World No.4 player went there and complained that Tsitsipas’ father was talking too much in the game. Medvedev was certainly feeling very distracted and thus, decided to go and have a talk with Keothavong.
It was definitely strange as Medvedev was easily winning and even broke in the third set. It must have been something that had bothered him earlier but clearly, the Russian player was not able to focus.
Critics are even writing that this is adding more salt to the wound as Tsitsipas is already losing the match.
Will Stefanos Tsitsipas be able to bounce back against Daniil Medvedev?
Although Tsitsipas lost the first two sets, he is playing the third one quite well. He is able to strike the ball better and even creating some problems for his opponent.
Fans haven’t forgotten his last match against Rafael Nadal where he made a spectacular comeback and defeated the legend after losing the first two sets. If he wins the third set, the stakes will be high for another incredible comeback.
Tsitsipas will surely want to win this match and play his maiden Grand Slam final. On the other hand, Medvedev is on a winning streak and will like to extend his dominance. Will Tsitsipas be able to break Medevdev’s streak and face Novak Djokovic in the finals?
