Alexander Zverev refusing to let allegations affect Paris campaign, saying: ‘I am here to play tennis’

Alexander Zverev says he will not be drawn on any allegations on his personal life, insisting he just wants to play tennis. 

Since winning both Cologne tittles last month, Zverev has been the subject of accusations from a former girlfriend, which he has strongly denied via his social media channels.

He is playing for the first time since those allegations at the Paris Masters, and he made a strong start to his campaign beating Miomir Kecmanovic 6-2, 6-2 on Wednesday.

And that tennis, he says, is the only talking he wants to do at the moment.

“Well, I’m here to play tennis,” Zverev told reporters in Paris. “So, you know, I have been doing that well the last few weeks.

“I mean, since the [restart] of the season, and I want to continue doing that.

“As you said, there is obviously a little bit of things going on [but] I have said everything on my Instagram.

“There is nothing else I can add right now. I’m here to play tennis.

“I’m enjoying my time on court. I have said everything and there is nothing more I can say right now.”

Zverev will face Frenchman Adrian Mannarino, who he beat at the US Open and in Cologne, in the Paris Masters third round.
