Alexander Zverev He did not have a 2020 for nothing simple. His sports results were on the surface of the hand of extra-sports issues.
A two-set lead in the US Open final who couldn’t be crowned, a double in Cologne in consecutive weeks, countless double faults, the pregnancy of an ex-partner, the complaint for mistreatment of another and, also, an old legal dispute with his old manager, Patricio Apey.
But everything has an end point and at least something the German can feel calm. In a courthouse in London Sascha reached an agreement with Ace Group International, the agency that represented him.
The message to his fans:
“What a day. It is a very important day for me. After two years of disputes and fights with my old representation agency, I can finally leave behind an unjust and oppressive contract. I signed it 8 years ago, with blind faith of a teenager who is only 15. I would like to thank my lawyers, who gave me the strength not to shut up and face an unacceptable contract. I hope that by making this public and after dealing with it in court, we have been able to raise awareness in emerging players and their families: professional sports agents don’t always act in their best interests. We should think of a way to prevent these kinds of obstacles for young players out there. “
