ZVEREV about outraster: “worst moment of my life”
“It was certainly the worst moment of my life and my career,” said the 24-year-old Hamburger at a press conference in front of the ATP tournament in Indian Wells on Wednesday (local time). “Excuse me is probably not enough, as I behave. It was embarrassing for me, it’s still embarrassing when I’m rumbles or in the locker room. It’s not a nice feeling.”
The ATP had punished Zverev tags before with an eight weeks long barrier on probation. In addition, the number three of the world rankings became an additional fine of $ 25,000 – also for probation – imposed on how the ATP announced on Tuesday. Thus, Zverev may not afford another infringement until 22 February 2023 – one year after the incident – which leads to a fine for unsportsual behavior.
Price gel reduction and point loss
The 24-year-old had beaten in the tournament in Acapulco after a defeat in double several times with his racket against the referee chair, on which the impartial still sat. He was disqualified and had to pay 40,000 dollars penalty. In addition, the Hamburger has to repay the prize money of more than $ 30,000 and loses the points for the world rankings.
