“My phone was in the locker room,” Zverev denies using phone during ATP Finals defeat

Alexander Zverev, who lost his ATP Finals match against Stefanos Tsitsipas has denied using his phone during a break. The footage revealed that the World No. 7 was touching something in his bag during a changeover. It was widely speculated that he reached out to his phone.

When asked in the post-match news conference, the 22-year-old said that he did not carry the phone with him, he never does. “I don’t know what they saw, but it was definitely not a phone,” he said. “My phone was in the locker room. I always leave it there.”

It is against the rules if players carry any electronic devices during a match. Zverev started this year’s ATP Finals with a straight-sets win over world No. 1 Rafael Nadal.
