Sharypova made stunning accusations against Zverev
"On that day, I was just walking with Dasha Medvedeva and my friend.
We lingered a little, and Sasha got angry about it. When I got home, we had a fight. Our quarrels always took place from scratch. I wrote on Instagram that he tried to strangle me with a pillow, twisted his arms. I tried to run out of the room several times, but he would not let me.
I was afraid that someone might see and hear us. But in the end I managed to break free, and I ran off barefoot with one phone on a string," Sharypova told Russian website Campionat. "At first I was hiding in a hotel, but Sasha went downstairs and found me.
We stood near the side entrance. I sobbed and tried to leave, and he wanted me to return to the room and we talked. But I understood that at that moment there would be no dialogue. "I was scared and wanted to run away. But Sasha pushed me against the wall and said that he would get nothing for it.
And that no one cares about me, no matter what he does to me. Fortunately, at that moment people appeared, and I rushed with them into the street. "I was alone, barefoot in the middle of the street. It's good that I had a phone, and I was able to contact a friend who took me to his family.
This correspondence was kept by my friend. "All things, money, documents - everything remained in the room. After this situation, Sasha wrote and called me. At first I didn't want to see him, but I decided that we still need to talk.
I arrived at the hotel and waited for him in the lobby, because I did not have a room card. While we corresponded with Sasha, we again began to swear with him. sat in the hotel toilet and cried. And when he arrived at the hotel, he just threw my things into the lobby. A friend whose family took me in has this photo left."
