- Tennis star says he now has chance to clear his name
- German alleged to have been emotionally and physically abusive
Alexander Zverev has welcomed an ATP investigation into allegations of domestic abuse against him, saying it was about time. The world No 4’s ex-girlfriend Olga Sharypova alleged in an interview with Slate magazine in August that the German was emotionally and physically abusive to her during their relationship.
The ATP had faced increasing criticism for failing to look into the allegations until the men’s tennis governing body announced on Monday it was conducting an investigation. The Olympic gold medallist has repeatedly denied the allegations and now hopes an ATP investigation will clear his name.
