"I’m embarrassed and disappointed on ATP's response" says Milos Raonic on Zverev accusations
Alexander Zverev has been dealing with accusations of physical and mental abuse for over a year now but a recent piece by reporter Ben Rothenberg shed light on what had happened according to his former ex who is accusing him of said abuse. Zverev addressed the accusations several times during the US Open and instructed his lawyer to sue the publication and the journalist for the piece.
ATP and other tennis governing bodies have remained quiet about the situation not taking any firm stance or action officially. That has raised concern among some tennis players however none have spoken on the accusations since the piece came out. Now, Milos Raonic becomes the first. In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine he said on the matter:
I’m embarrassed and disappointed in the ATP and the other governing bodies’ response to this situation.”
It's a notable deviation from the traditional tennis stance of not addresing controversy hoping it will simply go away. For now Raonic seems like the only one willing to talk about it as everyone else is pretending like it never happened.
