Alexander Zverev reacts on his ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’

The German was thrown out of the Mexican Open following his ‘unsportsmanlike’ conduct at the court.

Tokyo gold medalist Alexander Zverev reacts to the behaviour that outraged the sports world, social media and journalists all over the world. World No. 3 was withdrawn from the Mexican Open tournament following his “unsportsmanlike conduct” at the court.

The top-seeded player responded, “it is difficult to put into words how much I regret my behaviour. I have privately apologised to the chair umpire because my outburst towards him was wrong and unacceptable, and I am disappointed in myself”. The German further stated that the occurrence should have never happened and he will give no excuse about it. He also apologised to his fans, the event he was withdrawn from, and to tennis. He, at last, said, ” I am sorry for letting you down.”

Zverev faced a lot of backlashes and was thrown out of the ATP 500 tournament in Acapulco for his behaviour towards the chair umpire where he was seen smashing the racquet in anger multiple times into the chair of the umpire while his feet were inches away from that almost hit him.
