ATP have made an announcement stating that Alexander Zverev will be investigated after his ex-girlfriend’s accusations.
Previously, Olga Sharypova came out with her story, revealing that she was physically and mentally abused by Zverev back in 2019.
However, the World No. 4 has been quiet about her ex’s accusations, claiming he never did anything wrong to her and looking eager to prove that in court.
Massimo Calvelli, ATP CEO, said.
“As an organization, we recognize the need to be doing more to ensure everyone involved in professional tennis feels safe and protected. The recommendations of the Safeguarding Report will help us approach this in a robust way.
We are committed to making meaningful steps forward and know this won’t be an overnight process. The allegations raised against Alexander Zverev are serious, and we have a responsibility to address them. We hope our investigation will allow us to establish the facts and determine appropriate follow-up action.
We understand that Zverev welcomes our investigation and acknowledge that he has denied all allegations. We will also be monitoring any further legal developments following the preliminary injunction obtained by Zverev in the German Courts.”
