Alexander Zverev Faces New Assault Allegation After Penalty Order Reportedly Sought In Berlin



Alexander Zverev

On January 31, Alexander Zverev said “justice has been served” after the ATP ended its investigation into allegations of domestic violence 27 months after his ex-girlfriend Oella Sharipova pressed charges against him saying that “we don’t have enough evidence to support them.”

On Wednesday, it was reported that Zverev is now facing a second assault charge by another ex-partner, Brenda Batia, who is also the mother of their daughter, Mayella.

According to RTL, the Berlin Public Prosecutor’s Office is seeking sanctions against the two-time ATP Finals champion for alleged bodily harm. If the court decides to issue the order, Zverev will have two weeks to appeal. This process does not involve testing.

Zverev is about to lose to Matteo Berrettini in the third round at Wimbledon.
He is currently in Bastad at the Nordea Open, an ATP 250 clay court tournament. The 26-year-old won Tuesday’s first round victory over Alex Mulkan 7-5 in the third round.

When will the No. 5 seed be asked about the latest allegation? Most likely Thursday after his second round match against Thiago Monteiro.
