The ATP has released another installment of its wildly popular Cards Against Humanity video series, and, this time, some more younger players joined in, with Stefanos Tsitsipas playing judge to Frances Tiafoe, Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev.
To review the rules: Tsitsipas presents a topic card—e.g. "I learned about ______ the hard way." Each of the other players then picks a card from his own deck to try to make the funniest sentence. Then Tsitsipas, in the vein of Apples to Apples, chooses which card wins the point.
Medvedev won the first one with: I learned about hot yoga with Benoit Paire the hard way."
The Russian won the second point as well, making the sentence, "Instead of coal, Santa now gives bad children Denis Shapovalov's debut rap album."
Thiem then scored next, saying, "The night before a big match, I like to prepare with trampolining with Diego Schwartzman," which is fitting given their friendship.

But Medvedev would find a 3-1 lead with: "During changeovers I'm secretly thinking about Roger Federer moving the lawn."
Finally, Tiafoe got a point by making: "During the off season, I like to relax with a life-size replica of Reilly Opelka."
That made Medvedev the champion, 3-1-1. He's also having quite the surge on the tennis court; he made recently made the Citi Open and Rogers Cup finals, and on Saturday he plays Novak Djokovic in the Cincinnati semis, looking to make his second consecutive Masters 1000 final.
More and more, Medvedev is looking like a US Open dark-horse contender.
