ATP to investigate domestic abuse allegations against tennis star Alexander Zverev

The no.4 ranked men’s tennis player Alexander Zverev is in some hot water. Alexander Zverev is being accused of deomestic abuse by his ex-girlfriend, and the Association of Tennis Professionals has decided to open up an investigation into the matter.

“The allegations raised against Alexander Zverev are serious and we have a responsibility to address them,” said ATP CEO Massimo Calvelli.

“We hope our investigation will allow us to establish the facts and determine appropriate follow-up action. We understand Zverev welcomes our investigation and acknowledge that he has denied all allegations. We will also be monitoring any further legal developments following the preliminary injunction obtained by Zverev in the German Courts.”

The allegations against the 24-year old German stem from an incident in November 2020 where his former partner Olga Sharypova accused him of ongoing emotional abuse and separate incidents of physical abuse in an interview with Racquet Mag.

NFL coming to Germany?

The NFL looks poised to expand their reach in the European market beyond the United Kingdom.

The league announced that a German city will host an NFL regular season game in the near future. They are hoping for next season, but 2023 remains a more realistic goal due to scheduling conflicts that result from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The biding war to host an NFL contest is down to three German cities; Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

“After an initial period in which expressions of interest were received from multiple cities, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich have been invited to proceed to the `candidate phase’ of the process,” the league said in a statement. “Those cities will now participate in deeper conversations about staging games in Germany.” said the NFL in the statement.

Nets GM felt he had “no choice” but to keep Kyrie Irving away from the team until he is fully vaccinated

The Brooklyn Nets have championship aspirations this season and certainly didn’t want to start off the 2021/22 campaign this way. But Kyrie Irving’s vaccine stubbornness has forced their hand.

Nets GM Sean Marks recently spoke to the media about the controversial decision to keep Kyrie Irving away from the team until he gets fully vaccinated. He admitted it was a tough decision, but clearly has no regrets with how he handled it.

“He has a choice to make, and he made his choice.” said Marks.

“Again, my job here is to make what we deem as the best decision and best choices for the organization moving ahead as a whole. They’re not always ones that are going to be met with open arms and a thumbs-up. These are hard decisions. Just like I’m sure it wasn’t easy for Kyrie either to have to make that [decision] to not be around his teammates.”

The Nets will open their season presumably without Irving when they take on the Milwaukee Bucks next Tuesday.
