Might as well sit on court with the player then if thats the case.

Coaching gets done before the match. Onus should be on the player during the match to think their way through the challenges.
Why?

As an example

Olympics coaching is allowed

Masters golf coaching is allowed

Tour de France coaching is allowed

Anyone who says this crowd is okay is a part-time fan who only watches when the AO rolls around and has probably never played the game either. That sort of distraction while serving is extremely off-putting.

For Medvedev to perform so well in spite of the boorish idiots is pretty impressive.

Medvedev is too good.

Tsitsipas will struggle to win a slam as long as he struggles to overcome him.

H2H is now 7-2 in Med’s favour.

Shows how well FAA played the other night. Medvedev's level barely drops and hasn't really all tournament. He has dropped sets from 10 minutes of losing focus that's it really. The final is going to go 5 sets because neither Rafa or Daniil will give an inch.

In fact since Covid it has virtually stopped which is a good thing.

I don't know how Eva could of heard what was being said she was under the tunnel, are they miked up.
If he’s being coached, to hear him his dad would have have had to say it out loudly. If shes standing under the players box next to the doorway then she would have heard it.
