Alexander Zverev suggests off court problems affected his mental heath

German tennis star Alexander Zverev doesn’t want to comment any further on the accusations made by his ex-girlfriend Olya Sharypova. 

Just days before the start of the US Open, an article published on Slate provided more details on how Zverev allegedly abused Sharypova. 

The article drew lots of attention but Zverev was quick to react, taking a legal action against the source and the author who published the article. 

In his statement posted, Zverev once again insisted he didn’t domestically abuse Sharypova. 

Also, Zverev said the court proved he was innocent. 

“I have said everything. I think my statement was very, very clear, and I think the German court system is also very clear. Just because we are not in Germany right now doesn’t mean that the court system is not great,” Zverev said in his press conference following his first round win at the US Open. 

Zverev’s mental health affected by the off court problems 

It has been a year since Sharypova came out publicly and made the allegations against Zverev. 

“I have said everything before. And there is also, I mean, there is going to be also further proceedings from my side because I will not let that sit on me, and that’s it. I’m not going to comment on it any further, because to be honest, I have been dealing with it for a long time, and you guys need to be fair to me as well, because we are talking about mental health and all that to players, and this is not healthy for me either,” Zverev added.  

“I’m very happy with how things went in the past few days, few weeks. I think a lot of people try to twist what I said and try to twist my words on that statement, but I think it was very, very clear. That’s it.”
