Episode 6 - I Thought There Were Accusations Against Zverev? Plus Madrid and Rome Recap With Breakthroughs and Disappointments
/

We would like to note that we did not plan to talk about the accusations against Alexander Zverev. We decided to lead with his accomplishments in Madrid, and then Nathan mentioned the accusations that are not even mentioned anymore. We find that suspicious on many different levels. There are multiple alleged incidents, and the biggest one seems to be August 2019 in New York. The link to “Olya’s Story” in Racquet Magazine is below, as well as other articles about the situation.

In the rest of the episode, we recap Madrid, where (frankly) Zverev and Aryna Sabalenka (7:35) won, then talk about Roger Federer coming back (although now we realize he already lost. Whoops, 11:08) and even Serena Williams playing in Parma. In the second half, we talk about Rafael Nadal’s 10th Rome title as he gears up to win his 14th French Open (19:11), talk about Novak Djokovic’s run to still make the final (27:31), Iga Swiatek’s dominant Rome final as she gears up to defend her French Open (32:53), and end talking about why Ash Barty is still the favorite to win her second title in Paris (34:54).
