Alexander Zverev, the former world number two, won’t be penalised following an investigation into allegations of domestic violence.

The ATP investigation found that there was “insufficient evidence” to back up the accusations made by the German’s ex-girlfriend, Olya Sharypova.

In their relationship in 2020, she charged Zverev with committing physical and emotional abuse, but he refuted her claims.

The ATP judgement may need to be “re-evaluated” if new information becomes available.

The men’s professional tennis governing body stated it recruited the Lake Forest Group, a private investigation firm, to look into the allegations.

It also interviewed 24 people, including players, family members, and friends, and performed “detailed interviews with both Sharypova and Zverev.”

During the 15-month investigation, text messages, audio recordings, and photos were scrutinized.

“The investigation was unable to substantiate the allegations of abuse due to a lack of verifiable evidence and eyewitness testimonies, as well as inconsistent comments by Sharypova, Zverev, and other interviewees,” the ATP said.

Zverev, a two-time Tour Finals champion, climbed to second place in June of last year before suffering a serious ankle injury during a match against Rafael Nadal at the French Open.

This month marked his return to action.

In 2021, when Sharypova made new charges of abuse, Zverev filed a lawsuit against her and an internet publisher.

He also backed the ATP’s implementation of a domestic violence policy.
