Daniil Medvedev was fined $9,000 for his behaviour during the third round match win over Feliciano Lopez at the US Open on Friday. The Russian player got fined $9,000 in total, including 4,000 for a visible obscenity, which was not called during the match but was clearly seen on broadcasts and the big screen in the stadium, plus 5,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Denis Shapovalov, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios, Stan Wawrinka and Joao Sousa all got a $3,000 fine. Shapovalov shared what makes the US Open unique: "First of all, when you kind of have history at a tournament you've done well at, you have that feeling every time you come back, that you're able to play well on these courts.
The atmosphere, the people, the city, it all kind of helps me. I feel really comfortable whenever I come to New York. From the time I played juniors here, winning the doubles was kind of the first step. I did pretty well at the singles.
I qualified, made third round. Every year I've been back here, I've been more and more excited to come back. I fell in love with the city. I fell in love with the atmosphere.I think I'm just really excited whenever this time of year comes around.
I think that really helps me kind of bring that fire out from inside me. Obviously that's when I do play my best tennis."
