Karl Stefanovic Unleashes On Russian Tennis Star Daniil Medvedev

Today host Karl Stefanovic unleashed on Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev after he called the Australian Tennis Open crowd, “low I.Q”

Stefanovic isn’t exactly known for holding back in Ubers or on-air. So this morning he made it very clear he had a bone to pick with Medvedev.

According to news.com.au, Stefanovic said: “Daniil Medvedev, my accountant has a better personality.

“Daniil Medvedev, he makes Ivan Lendl look like Beyonce. Daniil Medvedev, Terminator 4 had more facial expressions.”

Stefanovic also added: “Insulting the fans like that – they weren’t actually booing him. He misunderstood what was happening.”

Stefanovic is responding to Medvedev’s comments after he beat Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round. The crowd was particularly enthusiastic that night and there was plenty of cheering and booing.

Let’s face it the crowd was clearly rooting for Kyrgios and Medvedev managed to hold his nerve.

Afterwards, Medvedev’s told Eurosport, “It’s just a little disappointing when they are making so much noise between first and second serve. I guess some people just have a low IQ.”

Naturally, Twitter erupted over it.

 

And while Twitter seemed to be on the Russian tennis player’s side. Clearly, Stefanovic didn’t agree.

Of course, Stefanovic does take his Aussie Tennis very seriously which makes sense because The Australian Open is Nine’s pride and joy.
