Daniil Medvedev threw his racquet out of frustration during his match against Stan Wawrinka yesterday and the French crowd started to boo him but he was ready.
The Russian has shown a propensity to mock and make fun of crowds before as he did that in New York and several other players before. Yesterday it was time for the Metz crowd and it started after they booed him. It was early in the 3rd set; the Russian just lost his serve with Wawrinka up 2-0.

He lost a point and proceeded to throw his racquet which the crowd booed immediately. He didn't like that very much and provoked them with several gestures that could be interpreted in various different ways. The crowd continued to boo him and he continued to mock them until the umpire finally stepped in.
Wawrinka pleaded with the crowd and eventually the match resumed. Medvedev would break back but lose his serve once more towards the end to crash out of the event.
