Interestingly then ….just after the Danil ‘small cat’ Medvedev outburst the umpire sets up the sting w the Greek speaking umpire who notifies of the illegal coaching by Tsisipas campDaniil Medvedev has been fined just over $17,000 following his extraordinary outburst at the chair umpire in his fiery Australian Open semifinal win over Stefanos Tsitsipas on Friday night.
Medvedev took aim at chair umpire Jaume Campistol when he accused Tsitsipas of receiving illegal coaching from his father in the stands.
Tsitsipas did not escape a financial penalty, with the Greek fourth seed fined around $7,000 for coaching.
"Are you mad? Are you mad?" Medvedev screamed at Campistol during the second set of his 7-6 (7/5), 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 win on Rod Laver Arena.
The financial penalty will not be felt too much by Medvedev, considering he will earn over $2.8 million if he wins Sunday night's final against Rafael Nadal and over $1.5 million if he finishes runner-up.
Tsitsipas received a pay cheque of $895,000 for making the semifinals.
As he prepares for the men's final, Daniil Medvedev is fined for his outburst at the chair umpire in Friday night's match, while Stefanos Tsitsipas does not escape a penalty.www.abc.net.au
