Daniil Medvedev was the leader of the Russian Tennis Federation’s Davis Cup-winning team but had a mixed reception from the Madrid crowds, which booed him following wins against Spain and Germany but backed him in the final.
That's nothing new, though, Medvedev's fortunes with the crowds have always been unpredictable. At the 2019 US Open, he was booed for giving the finger to the crowd in the first week, but then had fans rooting for him as he extended the final to five sets.
The No. 2 says that fans are having to get used to more emotional players like him following the long reign of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
