Alexander Zverev has been handed a substantial fine of 450,000 euros for his involvement in acts of domestic violence dating back to May 2020.

Currently in Paris for the Rolex Paris Masters, Zverev finds himself in a precarious situation. However, this predicament is unrelated to his performance on the tennis court. Despite being ranked 9th in the ATP, he has successfully advanced to the second round of the French Masters 1000, where he will face Ugo Humbert. Nevertheless, the news broke on Tuesday that the German tennis player has been sentenced to a hefty fine for his actions off the court.

The Berlin court press release states, “The accused is alleged to have physically assaulted a woman and caused her harm during an argument in Berlin in May 2020.” The sentence was pronounced on May 2, but Zverev, who recently won the Chengdu tournament in China, has appealed the decision. In the same press release, Zverev’s legal team contests the accusation and opposes the order.

Awaiting a New Judgment Date

The identity of the victim has not been disclosed in the court document. However, Zverev’s defense team has mentioned Brenda Patea, his former partner, in their social media communication. They have also emphasized that the Berlin court will soon hear both parties and establish a new judgment date. Zverev’s lawyers argue that the complainant’s justifications are inadmissible, citing a medical report that supports their client’s perspective.
