German tennis star Alexander “Sascha” Zverev is one of the brightest talents in the game, having won numerous titles on the ATP Tour, a gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and reached the final of the 2020 US Open.
Alexander started playing tennis at a young age. He turned pro in 2013 and won his first ATP Tour title at the St. Petersburg Open in 2016. Since then, he has been continuously ranked in the top 10 from July 2017 to November 2022, with his highest ranking being world No. 2. Zverev’s success on the tennis court has also led to him being the subject of a new documentary on RTL+ titled ‘Zverev: Der Unvollendete.’
However, apart from his tennis achievements, Zverev is also in the public eye due to his relationship with Sophia Thomalla, a well-known German model and presenter. In this article, we will delve deeper into their relationship and understand the challenges they face.
