Alexander Zverev after ATP decision: "Long and tiring process"

After a long independent investigation that lasted 15 months, the ATP has reached its verdict: the accusatory evidence against Alexander Zverev following the public denunciation of Olya Sharypova, the German's former partner, who said she had suffered domestic violence does not have sufficient elements to apply any kind of punishment.

Thus ends this unhappy chapter for the former number two in the ATP world rankings who, with a letter published in a story on his official Instagram profile, clarified the matter thus: "From the beginning I have maintained my innocence and have denied the unfounded allegations made against me.

I fully appreciate and cooperate with the ATP investigation and am grateful for the time and attention the organization has devoted to this matter. This decision comes from a neutral, independent arbitrator who has reviewed all relevant information and has come to a clear and informed decision in my favor in this matter.

In addition to the ATP's independent investigation, I also initiated court cases in Germany and Russia, both of which I won. I am grateful that all of this has been resolved once and for all and my priority now is to recover from my injury and focus on what I love most in the world of tennis.

I want to thank my friends, family and fans for their wholehearted support. It was a long and tiring process, but in the end justice prevailed."

These were the words released by the 25-year-old Teutonic who, after a long injury he suffered at Roland Garros last year during the semifinal against Rafael Nadal, has resumed playing in this first part of 2023 playing the Australian Open where he had to surrender in four sets in the second round against Michael Mmoh.

The German knows that he will have to work hard this period to recover tournament after tournament the form that had allowed him last season to get close to the number one position in the world rankings.
