Alexander Zverev says «justice has prevailed» after the ATP investigation concluded that there is «insufficient evidence» to substantiate allegations of domestic abuse made by the German’s ex-girlfriend, Olya Sharypova. In late 2021, the ATP announced that it would launch an investigation into the domestic abuse allegations Sharypova made against Zverev.

I have fully welcomed and cooperated with the ATP investigation and am grateful for the organization’s time and attention to this matter. This decision marks a neutral third-party arbitrator who has reviewed all relevant information and has made a clear and informed decision on this matter in my favor.
In addition to the independent ATP investigation, I also initiated legal proceedings in Germany and Russia, which I won. I am grateful that this has finally been resolved and my priority now is to recover from the injury and focus on what I love most in this world: tennis.
I want to thank my friends, family, and fans for their continued support. We have followed a long and difficult process and justice has prevailed,» Zverev said in a statement. “A major independent investigation into Alexander Zverev found insufficient evidence to substantiate the published allegations of abuse.
As a result, the ATP will not take any disciplinary action,» the ATP statement read. Ever since Sharypova accused Zverev of domestic abuse, the German tennis star has maintained his innocence.
