The fourth seeded player defeated his compatriot and the highest seed Daniil Medvedev in three sets 2: 6, 6: 3 and 6: 3 in Saturday’s semifinals.
In the fight for the title, he will meet the best of the pair Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Medvedev hit the camera during the match, later kicking it.
The situation came at 6: 2, 1: 1 for Medvedev. During one of the exchanges, he crashed into a camera located behind him at the level of the court. She fell to the ground.
“I almost broke my arm,” he repeated to the referee several times.
“Don’t you care about the players?” The second player in the ATP rankings asked him. He later threatened, “I’ll sue them.” And he kicked the camera…
However, several fans understand his anger.
“It’s funny. The cameras have nothing to look for on the court. They should put them in the stands, “it was said in most of the comments below the videos.
