Medvedev could not defend the title he won on the lawn of Mallorca last year.

The Muscovite did not show any signs of being comfortable on the track. Under the scorching sun, he abused the dropshots in the first set and unleashed his bad mood by hitting his own bench at the start of the second set.

That gesture was publicly denounced and the current number one in the world responded by showing both thumbs down.

Medvedev was not satisfied with a good year. He lost all three finals he played: against Rafael Nadal (Australia), Tim Van Rijthoven (Hertongenbosch) and Hubert Hurkacz (Halle).
