Daniil Medvedev got into a heated exchange with his coach on court during his US Open final clash with Novak Djokovic.
The No.3 seed, who beat world No.1 Carlos Alcaraz to reach the showpiece match, is two sets down. His defeat in the second, which lasted one hour and 44 minutes, was a gut-wrenching experience as his opponent showed visible signs of fatigue.
And at the beginning of the third Medvedv cut a disconsolate figure and vented his frustrations at coach Gilles Cervana.
It’s not clear what was said between the pair but things got very awkward as the crowd inside Arthur Ashe Stadium listened to their frank exchange of views.
Medvedev lost his serve in the next game but managed to break the 23-time Grand Slam champion back.
However, Djokovic broke Medvedev’s serve again as he looks set to claim his fourth US Open crown.
