Alexander Zverev abuse
Zverev has been accused of physical and emotional abuse by his former girlfriend, Olya Sharypova, during their relationship in 2019.
Sharypova has offered detailed descriptions of the alleged abuse in hotel rooms at numerous events in 2019, including the US Open, Laver Cup, and Shanghai Masters.
Zverev has repeatedly and categorically denied ever abusing Sharypova.
The ATP initially responded by saying that they would only act in the event of a legal investigation, which led to significant criticism at a time when many other professional sports have developed domestic violence policies.
However, in October 2021, the ATP announced an investigation into the allegations against Zverev, saying in a statement that the allegations raised against Zverev are serious and they have a responsibility to address them.
The ATP is specifically investigating Sharypova’s allegations surrounding the Shanghai Masters in 2019.
The ATP commissioned the investigation after Zverev’s former girlfriend Olya Sharypova, a Russian former tennis player, said that Zverev repeatedly abused her during confrontations in New York, Shanghai, Monaco, and Geneva.
The investigation was conducted by The Lake Forest Group, a third-party consultant, working with the ATP’s outside legal counsel, the Florida-based firm Smith Hulsey & Busey.
Following a 15-month ATP-commissioned investigation, the ATP announced in January 2023 that there was insufficient evidence to substantiate the allegations and that it would take no disciplinary action against Zvere.

He won a bronze medal at the 1983 Summer Universiade and a gold medal at the 1984 Friendship Games.
Alexander’s mother, Irina Zvereva, was the fourth-highest-ranked women’s player nationally at one point.
His parents moved from Sochi to Moscow to train at the CSKA Moscow military-run tennis Club.
But with Soviet Union’s restriction to players competing outside the country, his parents couldn’t push their tennis talents to their absolute highest.
When the Soviet Union collapsed, Zverev’s mother went to Germany to compete at a tournament with her husband accompanying her as her coach.
