“Gilles Cervara has seen enough. I'm not sure if there's been something said there or whether it was just the nature of that point but he is leaving the OWL arena. I can't quite believe what I've seen there," the commentator said. However, after the match, Medvedev calmed down and congratulated Hurkacz for winning the title, which comes under the ATP World Tour 500 category.
