TORONTO – Semifinals day contains some surprises.

But as Daniil Medvedev discussed the balls and their effect he pointed out that it’s no surprise that a player like Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, who has the ability to create a lot of pace that Medvedev says he doesn’t, can hit through the balls even when they’re done and dusted after a few games.

Except, Davidovich Fokina was, as he put it, like “wood”. Just couldn’t do it.
