Is Daniil Medvedev currently the best male player in the world?

Shortly after Daniil Medvedev won his second straight Masters 1000 title in Shanghai, debate raged on The Tennis Podcast WhatsApp group: is this just a 4-month hot streak, or is Medvedev actually the best of the ATP #NextGen and the current best in the world?

It's a conversation which Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts continue on this week's episode. They also get stuck into the other talking points from Shanghai, including ATP Finals qualification for Stefanos Tsitsipas, aggro involving Roger Federer, and Andy Murray telling Fabio Fognini to "shut up".

Elsewhere, there's chat about Coco Gauff winning her first ever WTA title and the headlines it generated, Dan Evans becoming the British No.1, and Marion Bartoli's coaching role with Jelena Ostapenko.

Finally, our Davis Cup Finals competition winner is revealed, and last week's big Solihull Showdown between David and Matt is re-lived.
