Former world number one Andy Murray has criticised the role of the ATP in dealing with the case of Germany’s tennis star Alexander Zverev. The 27-year-old has been under investigation for charges of domestic abuse, and his trial began in Germany on Friday.
Murray was recently quoted in a report where he stated that the player should not be the one to answer such questions; in fact, it is the responsibility of organisations like ATP, which they have failed to complete in the last few days. “I got asked about that kind of a few years ago,” he said. “And the ATP’s kind of policy around those sorts of situations. Yeah, clearly it’s a difficult one.
“You know, the players shouldn’t be the ones that are coming in here making comment on it. It’s the ATP who should make the decision and make the, you know, the policy for what that would look like. I don’t think they (ATP Tour) did a particularly good job over the last few years with, I don’t know what the word is in terms of, you know, in these situations when you might ask me about that in press, like, it’s not for us to come up with what those policies are. It’s for the governing body to make that decision. Yeah, clearly it’s a very difficult subject, but it’s for you guys to obviously report on that, and we’ll see what happens with the trial. And then, I guess, a decision will be made after that.”
