World No.2 Daniil Medvedev has once again won over the Australian public with an endearing and cheeky interview following the 'disgusting' scenes a few nights ago following his match with Nick Kyrgios.

Medvedev hit out at the Australian Open crowd during his interview with tennis great Jim Courier following his victory over Kyrgios following a raucous crowd.

And on Saturday, Medvedev defeated Netherlands star Botic van de Zandschulp 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 and many fans were eager to see how the crowd and Medvedev would react during his interview.

And Medvedev was quick to give 'relationship advice' to the crowd with a cheeky smile on his face.

“I was hoping you were going to be a little bit easier on me you guys,” he joked to the crowd.

“I’ll put it this way, it’s easier to play a guy from the Netherlands than a guy from Australia in Australia in Melbourne."

“Every good relationship must have its ups and downs so I think it’s good, it’s entertaining and it’s real. It's not like something: 'Hey guys, bye, OK, whatever, see you next time.' There is some relationship going on."

Fans couldn't get enough of Medvedev's cheeky interview.

Medvedev will now play American Maxime Cressy after he defeated Australian wildcard Chris O'Connell in round three.

Daniil Medvedev hits out at Aus Open crowd

Earlier in the week, there was confusion about a small section of the crowd at Melbourne Park yelling "siuuu" - a celebratory chant created by football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo derived from the Spanish word for 'yes'.

The chant sounds exactly like booing, leading to mass confusion among TV commentators and fans.

Spectators were once again using the chant on Thursday night at Rod Laver Arena, however they appeared to turn into actual boos while Medvedev was speaking in his post-match interview on court.

The scenes were labelled 'disgusting' over how it played out, however Medvedev appeared to repair his relationship with the Australian Open crowd following his round 3 victory.

Medvedev was visibly shocked when his first response was booed, before he addressed the crowd directly.

This resulted him in telling the crowd to show some respect for Courier.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, the World No.2 said: "It's a little bit disappointing.

"A few moments on my serve, where he managed to make some good returns, and then break point on second serve, and people are cheering like you've made a double-fault.

"That's just disappointing. It's not everybody who's doing it - but those who are doing it probably have a low IQ."

However, after Saturday's adoring crowd, it appears the relationship has been repaired between the World No.2 and the Australian public.
