Zverev to face no disciplinary action from ATP over domestic abuse allegations: "Found insufficient evidence to substantiate published allegations"

Former World Number Two, Alexander Zverev will face no further action regarding domestic abuse allegations from the ATP at least after they concluded there was 'insufficient evidence' for disciplinary action.

A storm has hung over Zverev since being accused in 2020 by Olya Sharypova of domestic abuse and an independent investigation began which took 15 months and saw 24 interviews conducted on both sides.

"Based on a lack of reliable evidence and eyewitness reports, in addition to conflicting statements by Sharypova, Zverev and other interviewees, the investigation was unable to substantiate the allegations of abuse," the ATP said.

"The seriousness and complexity of these allegations required an extremely thorough investigative process and considerable resources," said ATP Chief Executive Officer, Massimo Calvelli on the matter.

"It also required us to turn to specialist investigators, which was new ground for ATP."
