Alexander Zverev's former-girlfriend, the Russian Olga Sharypova, has accused the world number 7 of having repeatedly carried out attacks of domestic violence against her. Through social media and through an interview on the site racquetmag.com, the model gave a long interview where she told, to her to say about her, her personal hell of her.
Several times Zverev has denied this situation and despite heavy rumors against him and now also in 2021, in an interview with the Bild microphones, the German returned to the story, denying everything that had happened again.
Here are his words: "After winning the two tournaments in Cologne I felt the happiest person in the world. I was in the room when we were little with my brother and we were playing Nintendo, suddenly messages about Olga's words came to me.
Zverev on Sharypova: "Her words are all a lie!"
That's how it went! Her words are all a lie, nothing is true and that's what she counts. The problem is, nowadays, with the power of social networks, you can accuse anyone of anything.
Why didn't I report my ex partner? The more attention I pay to this story, the bigger and longer it will become. I am determined to fight, yes. I haven't talked to her since 2019 and I find it strange that she denounced everything about her after more than a year and especially after the news that I would become a father with Brenda.
Many times I think about what people will think, it's not easy for me but luckily I have friends who totally support me. Now I have to think only of tennis." Alexander Zverev's 2020 was by no means easy. The German tennis player achieved excellent results on the court with his first final in a Grand Slam tournament shining above all: at the US Open, he was two sets ahead in the final, he was one step away from the title against Thiem, but in the end in a psychodrama contest, it was the Austrian who triumphed.
Zverev also received the news that he will become a father as his former partner Brenda Patea has announced that she is pregnant.
