Olga Sharypova is the ex-girlfriend of Alexander Zverev who accused him of physically and emotionally abusing her over the course of their relationship. She said that Zverev has been physically aggressive towards her on several occasions. One incident she mentioned was when he punched her in the face during an argument in their hotel room while he was participating in the 2019 Laver Cup competition.
After Sharypova made her initial accusations, Zverev released a statement in which he refuted the claims and said, ‘I deeply regret that she makes such statements.” Because the accusations are simply not true’.
Olga Sharypova Allegations
A statement from the ATP in October 2021 announced about an investigation into Zverev’s case. ‘The allegations raised against Alexander Zverev are serious and we have a responsibility to address them’.
In March 2022, ATP chairman Andrea Gaudenzi confirmed that the investigation is still ongoing. The ATP announced in late January 2023 that they will not punish Zverev due to insufficient evidence.
In July 2023, again a penalty order was filed against Alexander Zverev over alleged bodily harm against his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child, Brenda Patea.
On October 31, 2023, it was confirmed by the Tiergarten district court that a penalty order of 450,000 euros had been imposed on Zverev. He has raised an objection against this order, showing his disagreement with the decision.

Criticism for Netflix and the ATP
Zverev appeared in an episode of the second season of Break Point on Netflix in January 2024, which was centred around the player’s injury recovery. Netflix faced backlash for ignoring the two claims of domestic violence.
Later the same month, word spread that Zverev’s domestic violence case would go to trial, with proceedings set to begin on May 15, 2024. Zverev’s continued membership on the Players’ Council throughout the pendency of the domestic violence case has drawn criticism from the ATP.
