WATCH: Medvedev overcomes nosebleed, trolls Spanish crowd as Russia reach Davis Cup final

The Russian Tennis Federation team secured a spot in the Davis Cup final for the first time since 2007 after sweeping aside Germany, following some typically boisterous antics from the victorious Daniil Medvedev.
After Andrey Rublev had crushed Dominik Koepfer 6-4 6-0 earlier on Saturday in Madrid, Medvedev finished the job by easing past Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4 6-4 to give the Russian team an unassailable 2-0 lead in the tie.
The RTF team now takes on 2018 champions Croatia on Sunday, after they saw off Serbia on Friday in the first semi-final.
US Open champions Medvedev did the job in straight sets against world number 51 Struff but had to overcome a nosebleed along the way.
The Russian star's nose had been bleeding since the opening set but he finally stopped play in the second set to stem the flow. Blood stains were visible on his white shorts by the end of the match.
