ATP Finals - Medvedev’s yawn, Ruud’s rise, Djokovic vs. Zverev preview

David and Matt bring you the latest in the story involving Peng Shuai’s disappearance and discuss the main talking points from Turin as the ATP Finals group stage comes to a close. 

In what way was Daniil Medvedev vs. Jannik Sinner the best dead rubber of all time? Why did Medvedev’s fake yawn provoke such a reaction? Why does David like Casper Ruud so much? How did Ruud get the better of Andrey Rublev for the first time? What insights did Ruud give in his post match press conference? And how might Novak Djokovic vs. Alexander Zverev unfold?
