DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Zverev: “That’s innocence!” – Tennis tonic


Alexander Zverev says he will not discuss claims that he abused his ex-girlfriend after their dispute was resolved out of court.

As a condition of the deal unveiled Friday, Zverev had to pay 200,000 euros ($217,000), most of which would go to state funds and the remainder to a fund for nonprofits.

In October, the German player was fined 450,000 euros in the same case. He was accused of violently strangling Patea with both hands in May 2020, according to court records.

The court stated that the alleged event took place in the stairs of her apartment building in the capital. It is reported that Patea experienced severe pain and breathing difficulties as a result of the attack. Zverev appealed after dismissing the charges.

After a German court dismissed a case against him on Friday, Zverev said he never wanted to hear another question about his trial over allegations of domestic violence. Zverev reached his second Grand Slam final after beating Casper Ruud in four sets.

He answered a reporter’s question during his post-match press conference, saying: ‘I’ve told you that from the beginning. I told everyone. I’m glad it’s over. Yeah, nothing more to say. That is it. Four years. I am happy with that.”

Zverev further said: “That’s what dropping the case means. That’s innocence. They won’t drop the case if you’re guilty. I don’t know what translations you have, but that’s what it means. Finished. We go on. I never want to hear another question on this subject.”
