Tennis pro’s violent, profanity-laced outburst caught on video as crowd looks on in horror

Alexander Zverev put on a violent display of anger after Tuesday’s match in Mexico, going as far as to smash his racquet against the umpire’s chair.

As the No. 3 top-ranked men’s tennis player, one may expect more composure and sportsmanship from Zverev, which could arguably make his tirade even more disturbing.

“You f***ing destroyed the whole f***ing match!” Zverev screamed at the umpire.

Watch:

The pro was reportedly angered by a line call made on a match-changing serve. He and his partner lost the match as a result, prompting the outburst seen above.

Twitter reacted to the video, some with questions and many with condemnations:

Zverev apologized for his behavior, claiming that he “left too much” on the court.

“It is difficult to put into words how much I regret my behaviour during and after the doubles match yesterday,” Zverev wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “I have privately apologised to the chair umpire because my outburst towards him was wrong and unacceptable, and I am only disappointed in myself. It just should not have happened and there is no excuse. I would also like to apologise to my fans, the tournament, and the sport that I love. As you know, I leave everything on the court. Yesterday, I left too much. I am going to take the coming days to reflect – on my actions and how I can ensure that it will not happen again. I am sorry for letting you down.”

However, others are wondering if this was a glimpse behind the mask. They claim that this violent outburst appears to bolster allegations of domestic violence by his former girlfriend, Olga Sharypova.
