Alexander Zverev Thrown Out of Mexican Open After Attacking Umpire's Chair

Alexander Zverev is  one of the most talented tennis players currently. He is currently ranked 3rd best in the ATP . Zverev made history when he won the Mexican Open last year.

This time around he is in the news for the wrong reasons. Alexander, who is the world number 3 has officially been kicked out of the Mexican Open after his unsportsmanlike behaviour

The ATP has also released a statement to confirm the disqualification of Zverev from the tournament. The statement read, "Due to unsportsmanlike conduct at the conclusion of his doubles match on Tuesday night, Alexander Zverev has been withdrawn from the tournament in Acapulco,"

This incident took place after Zverev and his doubles partner Marcelo Mello lost a match due to a decisive tie break with a score of 6-2, 4-6, 10-6 against Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovarra.

The defending champion of the Mexico Open 2021 clearly deserved this punishment from the ATP.

Zverev felt that a point was wrongly adjudicated against him during the course of the match, he went up to the umpire to argue violently. After his demands were refused he struck the umpire’s chair violently multiple times.

The racket came close to striking the umpire’s foot several times.

The German is already being investigated by the ATP with regards to committing domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend, an accusation which he has denied multiple times.
