French Open - 'Is this a Futures?' - Daniil Medvedev fumes at noises in corridor against Stefanos Tsitsipas
Number two seed Daniil Medvedev was not happy with what he felt were disruptive noises in a nearby corridor behind him in Court Philippe Chatrier when he was trying to serve in the big evening clash. "Is this a Futures, or Roland Garros?" he asked before the umpire had to get on the phone and ensure that the situation was resolved before play could continue.
'Is this a Futures, or Roland Garros?' - Medvedev fumes at noises in corridor
The situation was not helped, of course, by the fact that no fans are currently permitted to be inside the stadium at Roland Garros for the late evening matches. As such, the atmosphere is non-existent and noises that would not normally be heard are picked up by the players.

Among other things, Medvedev was heard to say to the umpire:
Is this a Futures or Roland Garros?
Either way, eventually the umpire responded and ensured that there would not be a repeat of the distraction.
"I'm making sure they have stopped," the umpire said, before appearing satisfied and saying, "Merci".
