daniil medvedev

A racist rant by Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev led to his disqualification from the Savannah Challenger USTA event on Thursday. His opponent Donald Young won the match by default.

Medvedev, 20, was down 3-1 in the first set, but was about to break Young's serve when chair umpire Sandy French said his forehand shot went wide.

Medvedev, who assumed he'd broken Young's serve, walked over to his chair and sat down -- only to be told by French to play on.

"What?" said Medvedev, as the crowd laughed.

Even Young seemed confused by French's call. He walked over to analyze the mark left by Medvedev's ball on the clay court.

French climbed down out of the umpire's perch to take a closer look at the mark herself.

Convinced that his forehand shot was on the line, Medvedev remained seated.

After analyzing the mark, French again told Medvedev to play on.

“I know that you are friends. I am sure about it," he said to French while pointing to Young.

Both French and Young are black.

Medvedev played on, but Young held serve and Medvedev lost the game to trail 4-1 in the first set.

At that point, French called tournament supervisor Keith Crossland over to speak with Medvedev about his attitude.

After a lengthy discussion with Medvedev, Crossland walked over to French and advised her that Medvedev was in default for "unsportsmanlike conduct."

French announced the match was over. “Game. Set. Match. Young. 4-1. Default,” French said into the microphone, as the crowd sat in stunned silence. "What?!" one woman yelled.

Confused match commentator Mike Cation theorized that maybe Medvedev said something to Crossland that was far worse than the "friends" remark. "I wish we had picked up exactly what Medvedev said because it must have been pretty bad," said Cation.

John McEnroe's legendary meltdowns on the court in the 1980s rarely ever resulted in his disqualification.

A few observers believe political correctness was at fault on Thursday.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly. The umpire didn't want to admit she made a bad call. That "friends" remark was not racist enough to get him disqualified.

  • Jusstlookn

    Sure u do. ?

    thanks, a sis was like WHAT????

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    This has nothing to do with McEnroe type meltdowns though. Black tennis umpires, line judges, are constantly accused of showing favoritism to Black players by these overly entitled crac...Racism. Simple. Glad French stood her ground. Hewitt famously accused a Black line judge of being racist and favoring James Blake. At the US Open. He should have been DQ'd as well...Anyway, I love Donald Young??

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    right Nan lol....hey hun

  • Jusstlookn

    Tennis is filled with racist players, coaches, umpires...

    Ask the William sisters

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I only made the comparison because McEnroe cursed and carried on so badly on the court, but he was never disqualified.

    Did he say they're friends because they're black? Some people are so racist they just try to fit racism into any little crack they can find. Could it be that they were friends because he was getting all the calls, and not because they're black? Fucking racist.

    In a world with racial tensions so high you have to be sensitive, taking extra precautions with what you say. I think youre just angry. Piece of advice you don't seem educated enough to really take on the more intense aspects of racial profiling so dont, by the way I've never assumed two people were friends because they shared the same race or were sitting next to each other. I didn't respond at first because you seemed so aggressive and angry, I figured Id wait as clearly youre loose and morally alien yourself with people who harbor racist views. Loser simple mind, the kind of person we eat alive dummy.

  • Dem Moore

    Better yet a racist who's unaware there racist lol

  • melo

    Dude, you really just said you have to be smart to be racist. Don't lie, its right there. The silence you hear is the sound of your failure echoing around the empty room full of your success. Who knows, maybe one day I'll have some spare change for you.

  • Dem Moore

    Spare change, really?did someones text return finally come in and now there feeling special. But if its for me ill take it. "I want all mines". What i said is simple, I think you may have an issue with reversing facts. Facts are you're to stupid to discuss something as sensitive as race. That's what I said and feel about you trash box. Try that reverse blah blah with someone who cares. The man was disqualified for what those closly evolved felts were racist antics or fits nobody is playing with him but you or maybe your the only one who knows the truth. I could care less about you or your money or your dumbness you mistake as smart. I do hope you find a life and stop defending racist. I heard of going against the grain but it's not very becoming so stop or fall to sleep in a swimming please lol

  • melo

    You're the kinda dude that beats off to your own mirror, aren't you? Look how proud you are of yourself, using big words and punctuation. The thing is, it doesn't matter how clear your thoughts might be to yourself, you're still coming across as weak, childish, and of short-bus mentality. Please stop trying to win points in a contest that doesn't exist because you're losing. Go lay down, kid.

  • Dem Moore

    Lol lol lol the point is the man was disqualified for racist behavior. I don't know what your taking about masterbating, and mirrors, and all that gross stuff. You have really lost me but i always say people who defend racist are sickos. You have proven my point. So that's what you do start mess on the Internet then throw childess fits when your put in your place. I'll stup to your ghetto level, my nick name for you is broke, because if you keep up with these antics you like the guy your defending will be broke I'm sure your use it but rise up lol ghettoooooooooooooooo go fire some chicken or something.

  • Dem Moore

    DUDE LOL DUUUUUDE LOL DUUUDE LMAO SHUT UP AND SEND THE MONEY BROKE.

  • melo

    No matter how much i re-read this stuff, its still so adorable how hard you're trying. Unfortunately, I have to continue with life, so go collect your welfare check so you can attempt to matter. Please, keep trying though - I enjoy laughing when reading your tripe while taking a shit.

  • Dem Moore

    Re read and re read and re read... Make sure you read he was disqualified by those closly associated with the game for what they felt was racist behavior, simply. Now as your rereading I think you should foucus on your biscuit. It's a better look then being foucused on my financial situation. Marble counters aren't cheap especially when you want them all white with a leather finish. So please send what you can. and matter of fact no one in my family even extended gets walfare. Your one of those who assumes all black are ghetto and have less because thats all you know. Awwww I'm sorry for you that's why once a week I take time out of my busy remodel to help you mentally develop and remodel into someone who is unconcerned with simple things like finance and who? gets welfare, and more concerned with changing the heart condition of a broken people (all races). I'm so cute. I'm from l.a I don't know that game your playing. It's mo realla down here lol.

    swing and a miss. I was referring to the garbage you feel compelled to litter my internets with. But you bore me now. Good game tho
