Mischa Zverev was glad with how Alexander Zverev handled the off court drama thus season.
Alexander Zverev, 24, was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend Olya Sharypova.
Despite the off court drama, Alexander Zverev managed to win two ATP 500 titles, two Masters titles, an Olympic gold medal and an ATP Finals title.
On Sunday,Alexander Zverev delivered a strong performance in the ATP Finals final as he saw off world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev 6-4 6-4.
“I’m his brother, so I’ve always had faith and belief in him from the day he was born,” Mischa Zverev told The New York Times. “But yes, to win six tournaments, two Masters finals and Olympic gold, that’s a great year for anybody and especially with the things that were going on off the court, it’s more so impressive.”
The ATP launched an investigation into Alexander Zverev
Massimo Calvelli, ATP CEO, said in early October: “As an organisation we recognise the need to be doing more to ensure everyone involved in professional tennis feels safe and protected. The recommendations of the Safeguarding Report will help us approach this in a robust way. We are committed to making meaningful steps forward and know this won’t be an overnight process.”
Sharypova made some serious accusations against Alexander Zverev as she claimed he tried to strangle her with a pillow.
Calvelli added: “The allegations raised against Alexander Zverev are serious and we have a responsibility to address them. We hope our investigation will allow us to establish the facts and determine appropriate follow-up action. We understand Zverev welcomes our investigation and acknowledge that he has denied all allegations. We will also be monitoring any further legal developments following the preliminary injunction obtained by Zverev in the German Courts.”
After the ATP launched an investigation, Alexander Zverev said he was glad and he was confident that would help him finally clear his name.
