“I’ve known Sascha for a long time since he was very young. I have always had a good relationship with him and have a lot of respect for him and his family, ”said Djokovic after his victory over Zverev in the last group match in the ATP Finals in London. With that, the Serbian qualified for the semi-finals and the tournament was over for the German.
The Serbian number 1 in the world said he was sorry to hear that Zverev has to experience this. “I don’t know what exactly happened. Of course I do not support violence of any kind. So we will have to wait and see. ”
The 23-year-old German has called the allegations “unfounded and untrue”. The ATP announced earlier this week that it condemned any form of violence. However, the tennis association says it will await the results of investigations before taking action against a player.
“I’ve said everything I can say about it,” said Zverev when asked whether, now that the season is over, he will concentrate on clearing his name. “It is very unfortunate that accusations like this can cause so much damage and divert attention away from the sport, but unfortunately that is the world we live in. I can do nothing more ”, said the tennis player.
