Things are escalating in the Alexander Zverev vs. Olga Sharypova case. Sharypova has accused the German star she recently dated for over a year of domestic abuse citing four different incidents in Monte Carlo, the 2019 US Open, 2019 Laver Cup and 2019 Shanghai Masters.

The Russian went public with the allegations in Racquet Magazine last November, and hasn’t backed down in a second report published in Slate Wednesday.

Prior to his new York presser, he released a statement on social media attacking the Slate report:

“I have engaged my German and American lawyers in the matter. They have already obtained a preliminary injunction against the source and the author who published the false allegations. The lawyers have therefore initiated further proceedings against the source and the author.

“I categorically and unequivocally deny having abused Olya. I also fully support the creation of an ATP domestic violence policy. I will not address this matter any further.”

Later in press, he added a new twist the story revealing that a German court has heard the case and has sided with Zverev.

“I’ve always said that the allegations and everything that has been said is untrue,” Zverev told the press in New York Friday. “The court confirmed that. So there’s nothing else to say from my side because, as I said, the court confirmed that it’s untrue. There’s nothing more I can say towards that.”

He later clarified.

“We didn’t go to trial. If the court confirmed it, the court confirmed it. There’s nothing else that I can say,” Zverev said.

“Also I’ve actually asked the ATP myself for the past six months to have something. It’s going to get sorted in these kind of situations. I think it’s good that the ATP is kind of renewing their rules a little bit because they’ve been there since the ’80s and nothing has been changed in a way.”

Sharypova then responded to Zverev on Instagram.

And Slate also added their response to Zverev.

With this a backdrop, Zverev will open play on Tuesday against American Sam Querrey.
