Making Friends? 😬 Daniil Medvedev booed off after fiery encounter with Louis Armstrong Stadium crowd!

Daniil Medvedev may be the favourite outside of the usual suspects to cause an upset in New York but he isn’t making many friends.

The Russian who won his first Masters 1000 title in Cincinnati recently had a bit of a run-in with the crowd on Louis Armstrong in his four set win over Feliciano Lopez.

It what was quite a close encounter between Daniil and Feli there was a moment where Daniil tried to slyly show the crowd the middle finger…

However, they done showed him doing it on the big screen so everyone saw it and booed.

Incredibly even after it was showed the umpired told Feliciano Lopez he didn’t see it…

Medvedev did get a code violation later for snatching a towel and then threw his racket…

Things got interesting on Louis Armstrong. Feli was playing off the energy of the crowd who were cheering errors and double faults of the Russian. This even attracted the attention of WTA & Grand Slam Supervisor Donna Kelso who came to the court to keep a close eye on proceedings.

I will be surprised if Daniil escapes without a fine here.

It didn’t stop there…

During his on-court interview the Russian said this;

“Thank you all guys, because your energy tonight gave me the win”

“I want all of you to know that when you sleep tonight I won because of you”

“The more you do this (boo), the more I will win for you guys”

You can see the interview below…
