Daniil Medvedev was recently ousted from the Canadian Open in the round of 32 after suffering defeat against an in-form Nick Kyrgios.

The Russian tennis pro came into the tournament on the back of a triumphant campaign at Los Cabos Open where he emerged victorious without dropping a set. A strong performance was expected from the world no. 1 at Montreal but that wasn’t to be. Nick Kyrgios outclassed the 2021 US Open champion 6-7 (1-7), 6-4, 6-2 in the first round.

Medvedev would have been distraught after the loss. To make matters worse, a small section of fans disrespectfully hurled “loser” chants at him while he was making his way out of the stadium.

The 26-year-old stopped and went in the direction of the fans and got involved in a war of words. Security personnel was quick to get to the scene to stop things from potentially going out of hand. Medvedev asks: “What did you say?”. Later he was seen gesturing to the fans to keep a cool head.
