The World Tennis Organization announced that no disciplinary measures will be taken against the German tennis player, despite his former partner’s serious accusations of physical and emotional abuse: “The investigation failed to substantiate the claims”

The World Tennis Organization (ATP) announced today (Tuesday) that the extensive investigation regarding the harsh accusations against the German tennis player Alexander Zverev has ended, and no sufficient evidence was found to substantiate the allegations of abuse of his partner. As a result, no disciplinary action will be taken against Zverev by the ATP. The investigation commissioned by the ATP in October 2021 looked into the serious allegations made by Zverev’s ex-girlfriend, Olya Sharipova, who claimed that he abused her emotionally and physically.The investigation examined the accusations because some of them were allegedly made during ATP tournaments (including the Shanghai Masters tournament in 2019). Sasha Zverev’s ex on the abuse: “If I die in my room, I will have problems. Go kill yourself in the street”

The researchers conducted extensive interviews with Sharipova, Shebrev and 24 other people, including family members and friends of the two, tennis players and other parties involved in the ATP tour. The investigation reviewed Sharipova’s and Zverev’s claims, including text messages, audio files and photos. And so after a 15-month investigation, the investigators submitted the full report to the ATP, which announced: Based on the lack of reliable evidence and eyewitnesses, in addition to contradictory statements bySharipova, Zverev and other interviewees, the investigation was unable to substantiate the allegations of abuse, or determine that violations of the rules of the round had occurred, and as a result, no disciplinary action will be taken against Zverev by the ATP. Massimo Caloli, CEO of the ATP: “The seriousness and complexity of these allegations required a very thorough investigation process and many resources”.
