In an interview to Tennis Magazin, Alexander Zverev said he is involved in a legal dispute with his former agent Patricio Apey. "Now it's public. I am in a court with my previous agent," said Zverev, who denied engaging a new management company to represent his interests.
According to rumors, Zverev may work with Team8, the company founded by Roger Federer and Tony Godsick, in 2020: "First of all, I want to clarify everything..." Apey has worked with a lot of famous players like Gabriela Sabatini, Andy Murray.
Under his guidance, Zverev signed deals with Adidas, Head, Zegna and Richard Mille. However, since the Australian Open, he has not been wearing the watch. The contract between Apey and Zverev expired this year. On the Miami Open leaving Key Biscayne for Hard Rock Stadium, Zverev concluded: "For the players, the facility is much bigger, much more room and many more courts, so all in general, to play tennis, it’s very nice.
Crandon Park had something to it. It had some feeling, some energy, something Spanish to it and the crowd was always energetic. I don’t know how it’s going to be here. I hope it’s going to take over from Crandon Park and take all the energy here and just to make it bigger, even bigger.
Hopefully, it’s going to be a similar vibe." Zverev lost to Jan Lennard Struff in Indian Wells.
