Daniil Medvedev left a humorous reaction when his coach Gilles Cervara was seen crossing out a camera during the Madrid Open. The French coach has been accompanying the 2021 US Open champion for eight seasons, one of the most successful collaborations on the ATP Tour.
Previously, the coach worked as a hitting partner, having notable clients such as Thomas Enqvist, Justine Henin, and Marat Safin, until he formally began his coaching career in 2017. Under Cervara's guidance, Medvedev has won 19 titles and reached the world No. 1 ranking in 2022.
Tennis Channel recently shared a video where it can be seen that a camera was trying to capture Cervara's expression as he was sitting on a court. However, the Frenchman decided to pass a marker over the camera lens in a playful moment: "No cameras allowed" read the post on X (formerly Twitter).
Medvedev responded to the post with a smiling face emoji and took the coach's moment from outside the court with humor.
Despite Medvedev's difficult relationship with clay courts, the Russian is already in the quarterfinals of the Madrid Open. At Caja Magica, he secured victories against strong opponents such as Matteo Arnaldi, Sebastian Korda (25th seed), and Aleksander Bublik (No. 17th). In the quarterfinals, he awaits the winner between Rafael Nadal and Jiri Lehecka.
