World No.7, Alexander Zverev has lately been receiving a lot of criticism and hatred. He along with Dominic Thiem had played in the Novak Djokovic’s unfortunate Adria Tour but tested negative of Coronavirus. Zverev announced that he would stay in quarantine for 14 days but he was soon captured partying. People everywhere went all hate eyes on him but World No. 3, Thiem stood up for him.
“He should have done it like me. He was also tested negatively, only his mistake was that he first wrote the statement and then had the bad luck of being filmed at the party. But I don’t like the way people criticize him. He is treated as if he were an elementary school child. But he’s a 23-year-old man. Sure, he made a mistake – but I don’t understand why everyone is getting involved.” Thiem said in an interview with TT as reported by Essentially Sports.
Australian player, Nick Kyrgios also criticized the German player and called him selfish for risking other people’s life to which Thiem said, “Kyrgios has built a lot of nonsense himself. I understand even less when he interferes with everything. It would be better if he came to terms with himself rather than always criticizing others.”
