Over the past year, world No.
4 Zverev has been making the headlines after being accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend Olya Sharypova. "Then, there are the unfounded accusations my ex-girlfriend Olga Sharypova, whch I read in the media today.
They make me very sad. We have known each other since we were children and shared many experiences together. I very much regret that she makes such statements. Because the accusations are simply not true. We had a relationship, but it ended a long time ago.
Why Olga is making these accusations now, I just don't know. I really hope that the two of us will find a way to deal with each other again in a reasonable and respectful way," Zverev said a year ago. Recently, an article published on Slate provided more details on Zverev's alleged domestic violence.
Zverev took a legal action after the article was published. "I have engaged my German and American lawyers in the matter," Zverev said a statement posted on his Twitter. "They have already obtained a preliminary injunction against the source and the author who published the false allegations.
The court followed our arguments and states, the accusations aroused are defamatory and false. The lawyers have therefore initiated further proceedings against the source and the author. "I categorically and unequivocally deny having abused Olya. I also fully support the creation of an ATP domestic violence policy."
