Medvedev maintains fab form; De Minaur the last man standing in Acapulco

Daniil Medvedev can’t stop winning. After he won his third title in as many weeks in Dubai, beating Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals and Andrey Rublev in the final, Catherine, David and Matt react to his scintillating form and amusing speech at the trophy ceremony as he took the opportunity to troll Stefanos Tsitsipas. 

Elsewhere, the gruelling conditions were the big talking point in Acapulco as Holger Rune experienced full body cramps and Taylor Fritz vomited on court. Eventually, Alex de Minaur prevailed, winning the biggest title of his career and continuing his upward trajectory. 

There’s also chat about Donna Vekic and Caroline Garcia’s runs to the final in Monterrey, the growing issue of different tournaments using different balls, and why the Netflix cameras are following Tommy Paul.
