Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev echo Murray verdict on Naomi Osaka Indian Wells heckling

“It’s tough for everybody because I can feel for Naomi, I mean I felt not great in Australia,” he said, referencing his irritation with the crowd for cheering his faults in the final against Nadal.

“I can feel the [for] fans that [are] maybe gonna say ‘what the hell, they’re getting millions, they should be ready for everything’.

“The same time we are humans, we all make mistakes, good decisions. Sometimes we feel bad, sometimes we feel good. So basically I can understand that Naomi didn’t feel that great when she heard it and I can completely understand her feelings.”

Speaking after his third-round defeat to Gael Monfils, the world No 1 admitted even he couldn’t control his emotions at times so couldn’t expect the fans too.

He added: “But yeah, as I say, I didn’t really see it with my own eyes so I don’t have much to say. Life would be easier if everybody would be calm and not angry but same even talking about me, I get angry so should be better also.”

Osaka, Medvedev and Murray will next be in action at the Miami Open later this month.

Nadal has pulled out as a precaution but is still going strong in Indian Wells after avoiding some upset defeats and will next face 17th seed Reilly Opelka.
