Andy Murray calls for ATP Tour to create domestic abuse policy

  • Comment follows allegations against Alexander Zverev
  • Murray hopes players will take vaccine for ‘good of the sport’

Andy Murray says the Association of Tennis Professionals, which governs the men’s game, should take domestic abuse cases such as the one which has engulfed Alexander Zverev over the past month “extremely seriously”.

The German world No 7 – who lost to the eventual champion Daniil Medevev and the world No 1 Novak Djokovic in the ATP Tour Finals in London last week – denied on an almost daily basis claims by Olya Sharypova that he had abused her during their long relationship.
