Watch: irritated Individual shushes are given by Daniil Medvedev to spectators in Rome.
Daniil Medvedev became irritated with the Rome audience and ordered some rowdy spectators to quiet down. Alexander Zverev lost against Medvedev in the round of 16 of the Rome Masters 6-2 7-6 (3). In the second set, Medvedev was up 4-3 and serving for a 5-3 advantage when Zverev somehow won the next five points to regain the break. Medvedev had been serving at 40/0.
At that time, the Rome crowd was beginning to become quite engaged in the game and to encourage Zverev. But Medvedev seemed to think that they were going too far.
Medvedev pleased that he prevented Zverev from claiming a comeback victory.
Medvedev appeared to be cruising to a straight-set victory with a 6-2, 4-3 lead and three straight game points.
However, Zverev was able to recover the break and held a set point in the tenth game on Medvedev’s serve. Fortunately for Medvedev, he delivered a powerful serve to avoid losing the set points and went on to win the match in two sets in the tie-break.
He definitely began to play a little bit better. We played some lengthy games, and even though the score was 4-3, I should have performed better. I ought to have performed better after 40/0. I made a couple simple mistakes, but that happens in tennis, so I knew I had to keep playing.
It was a difficult situation because I had a predetermined point to save later. Except for this game, I’m pleased with how I played during the entire match, and I’m really anticipating the next one,” Medvedev stated following the game.
At the Monte Carlo Masters in April, Medvedev and Zverev engaged in a closely contested encounter. Drama occurred during that match when Zverev referred to Medvedev as “one of the most unfair players in the world” in Monte Carlo. Medvedev claimed that they had a conversation and cleared the air prior to their encounter in Rome. There wasn’t any conflict between Medvedev and Zverev during their match in Rome.
