After numerous weather delays at the Rome Open, Daniil Medvedev defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas, but the two also amusingly resumed their on-court narrative. Tsitsipas performed a victory dance following their tie in Cincinnati last year, and it appears that his opponent in Rome was aware of that. After beating Tsitsipas in Rome, it was time for Daniil to have a hilarious dance aimed at Stefanos. Here are the videos.
