Zverev makes Davis Cup U-turn following Acapulco disqualificationfévrier 27, 2022
Alexander Zverev has reversed his decision not to play in the Davis Cup with the world number three now set to feature for Germany against Brazil to redeem himself after his disqualification from Acapulco.
The 24-year-old Olympic champion was kicked out of the Mexico event last week after repeatedly smashing his racquet against the umpire’s chair and unleashing a foul-mouthed rant.
He was fined $40,000 by the ATP and the German admitted his behaviour was « unacceptable ».
He has now opted to play for Germany against Brazil in Rio de Janeiro on March 4/5.
« We are happy that Alexander will be involved, » said Germany’s Davis Cup captain Michael Kohlmann.
« His behaviour in Acapulco was without question unacceptable and wrong.
