Daniil Medvedev brands umpire a 'small cat' and accuses Australian Open opponent of illegal coaching in bizarre meltdown

Jan 28, 2022

In the second Australian Open semi-final, top seed Daniil Medvedev overcame his contemporary Stefanos Tsitsipas in a feisty four-setter that revealed the froideur between these two bitter rivals.

This time, there was no face-to-face conversation across the net, in the manner of Tuesday’s flare-up between Denis Shapovalov and Rafael Nadal. Instead, Medvedev ranted furiously to umpire Jaume Campistol about Tsitsipas receiving illegal coaching from his father Apostolos.
