Russian tennis player, world number two Daniil Medvedev spoke out about the behavior of the fans during his first round match at Roland-Garros.
Medvedev lost to Brazil's Thiago Seyboth Wild in his opening game at the French Open.
The match took place on a clay surface and ended with the 172nd-ranked player of the world winning in five sets, 7-6, 6-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.
It was fine. The only thing when I asked the umpire to check the mark was pretty close, in my opinion. I was just discussing with her like where does she see the ball in, and getting booed for whatever reason. I just told them to shut up, and that's it. Because I was discussing with another person, not with them, so they should shut up at this moment. Other than that, everything was fine, I think. Yeah.
The winner had two aces and seven break points out of 19. Medvedev had 14 aces and 15 double faults.
The match lasted 4 hours and 15 minutes. In the second round the Brazilian will play against the winner of the pair of Kentin Halys (France) vs Guido Pella (Argentina).
