Tennis player Alex Zverev lied about self-isolating, he partied in France this weekend

Everyone in this ^ photo tested positive for the coronavirus except Alexander “Sascha” Zverev, the blonde dumbass (and would-be tennis heartthrob for youths) on the far right. Borna Coric, Grigor Dimitrov and Novak Djokovic all got infected with the virus at some point during the two weeks they spent in Belgrade and Zadar as part of the Djokovic-organized Adria Tour. We spent all of last week talking about Djokovic having NO precautions, testing protocols, or social distancing on the tour.

Personally, I found it strange that Zverev “tested negative.” A while back, he actually claimed to have caught the virus late last fall, when the tennis tour moved through Beijing and Shanghai (in what would have been the first half of October). He was sick around then, but… I have my doubts. Especially since he truly played so badly during the Adria Tour – he *looked* sick and he played like he felt ill. After Zverev got tested in Zadar two Sundays ago, he released this statement:

zverev apology

He likely released that statement when he was still in Zadar, Croatia. Ever since then, there have been reports that he actually didn’t stick around Croatia and he wasn’t self-isolating whatsoever. Then yesterday, there was proof. The idiot was in the South of France at a wedding or party. No masks, no social distancing, and he was drinking and hanging out with some, uh, ladies:

I cannot believe this dumbass. I mean, I follow tennis so I know Sascha really is *that* dumb, but I honestly thought that after his team released that statement about self-isolating, he actually would, you know, try not to party for a few weeks. Between Zverev and Dominic Thiem (who also allegedly tested negative), there will be a major coronavirus outbreak in France and Austria anyday now because these idiots can’t stay in a hotel or a house for two full weeks.

So now it’s a huge thing and even Sascha’s former (?) BFF, Australian player Nick Kyrigos bashing Sascha as “selfish.” I really do love tennis drama, but this corona-drama is so dangerous.

    He looks like Tennis Bieber. And my god his hair is horrible. It looks so frizzy and dead and he seems to have a VERY high forehead.

    Seriously. Are tennis players an EXTRA level of dumb or something? This whole thing is appalling.

    • SomeChick says:

      Hahahahahahaha, “Tennis Bieber” LOLOL!

      Entitlement is that extra level of dumb. All these people who think they are exempt from the crap that regular people have to deal with. That’s just not how the virus works.

      I read tarot. Everyone is always freaked out by the Death card (it means transformation, but it looks scary and, well, it is called “Death”). The traditional illustration shows a king among the dying people, and there is also an old man, a young woman, and a child. What that means is that no one is exempt. Who you are can’t shield you from the forces of change. These schmendricks are just now cottoning on to that.

      Tennis Bieber Is amazing! 🤣

    What dumbasses.

    Honestly, something I don’t get about these guys – and the athletes here in the US who are going to be playing again soon, even in hotspots like Florida (ahem Disney and NBA) – they are athletes. They need their bodies to be in top form. I feel like every week we hear about some other lasting effect of this virus, or at least more information on what it does to your lungs. Why purposely put your body at risk like that? Even without the lasting effects, there’s a chance the virus could impact your playing for the next month or so. Why risk it?

    so just from that perspective, you would think these guys would take more precautions, and then add in the whole “self isolate to contain the virus” part of it and….yeah. dumbasses.

      Am expecting Disney World to postpone their opening on July 15th (?) as Disneyland in CA has already postponed their opening.

      • Ainsley7 says:

        Disneyland is only postponing because California is making them. Disney World will most likely open unless Florida stops them.

      • Miss Melissa says:

        Actually Disney is having an internal issue with their unions. The unions appealed to CA to request a postponement for safety. Orange Co is having a surge.

        The word is unions in FL took note and are now pushing back for the same reason.

      • Becks1 says:

        yeah, I think Disney World will open as scheduled unless Florida tells them no. But, I wish they would delay the opening.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, this I don’t get either.

      “recovery” just means you don’t die from it, and in some of the covid cases, the people who’ve recovered have been left severely debilitated, with extreme and sometimes permanent organ damage. and, though it does hit elderly hardest, there are stories of young, fit people having serious complications.

      if any of these guys gets very sick, they could lose their careers. so, so dumb.

    • Nic919 says:

      Florida is a mess right now. No sports should be happening there.
      I read that a fair number of Toronto Blue Jays tested positive while in Florida too.

      They need to have a real shut down to contain things. With gov trump wannabe not publishing hospitalization numbers now you know it’s bad.

    • LaraW” says:

      It’s becoming increasingly apparent to the medical community that this disease is primarily vascular in nature- the damage to the lungs is caused by microangiopathy and blood seems to remain hypercoaguable even after recovery, to the extent that doctors are sending patients home with heparin or lovenox, recommmending baby aspirin hoping to prevent people from throwing clots. There more stories emerging that younger people with no previous medical history who have recovered from the virus are still experiencing shortness of breath, pulmonary embolisms, or in more extreme cases having strokes, seizures, migraines, even sudden blindness. Even if you don’t die from the virus on a ventilator, it can still kill or severely debilitate you a month down the road. Glad these tennis dudes put a lot of thought into the future of their careers.

    I never ever thought we’d be listening to Kyrgios as the voice of reason, but here we are. I’ve actually been proud of his stance with this, and also his help with the bushfires earlier in the year.

    These tennis players are showing what spoilt, arrogant brats they are. It’s so disappointing. The spread of the virus is not only ridiculously dangerous for other people’s health but it can and has destroyed many people’s livelihoods.

    Is that what they want? They can’t put the needs of others far less fortunate before themselves. Man it makes my bloody boil!

    • Slowsnow says:

      Kyrgios loves to sh*t on tennis.It’s his M.O.
      Although he is right here he’s still talking to a camera while driving.
      I dunno. I think people very often are driven by mixed motivations to do things and he has his own issues.

    • Elle says:

      I like Kyrgios. He treats tennis like a regular slob job. That’s refreshing.

      Achievement can blind us to people’s true values.

  4. FrenchGirl says:

    This dumbass must think the Covid 19 is a sort of flu .

  5. Feebee says:

    He might have had ‘something’ last October but I doubt it was Covid. Even though reports out of Italy (if memory serves) about water they tested from October collections tested + for the virus. So they think it’s been around a lot longer than current timelines. But I digress….

    It is amusing to have NK be the sensible, ‘voice of reason’. I’m not terribly surprised tennis in particular is having this problem. A lot of players are selfish and perhaps this is necessary for their sport but man, it’s backfiring pandemic-wise. It’s a horrible look for Sascha and tennis. If anyone’s used to living in a hotel room for a couple of weeks it’s tennis players. It’s really not that hard, though apparently it is.

  6. Izzy says:

    They should place him under house arrest with armed guards at the entrances.

  7. AnnaKist says:

    Eeehhhhhhh. What a world we live in when Nick Kyrgios is not only fulminating about the behaviour of this bunch of plonkers, but is the voice of reason in this monumental covidiocy. 😂 Go, Nick! 🇦🇺

  8. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    A heartthrob? REALLY?!

  9. Megan2 says:

    I have never really followed tennis, and based on the comments I’ve read this Nick Kyrgios person is maybe controversial…

    … but I just can’t help a little sigh over seeing a VERY nice looking man taking aim at these a$$hats and calling them out. It’s delightful. It’s truly making me want to start following tennis and learning about the sport, just so that I can more completely enjoy all of Nick’s posts.

    I am a shallow beast, it’s true.

  10. Sof says:

    I’m not surprised at this as I’ve said before, his girlfriend Brenda posts a lot on Instagram and they haven’t stopped behaving as if there was nothing wrong with the world. The girl at 0:12 seems to be her.
    I wonder if Kyrgios is posting these kind of videos because he geniunly cares or if he just resents being labelled as the problematic one when all of them are a**holes.
    Male players have always been idiots, they are fun to watch on social media (Stefanos doing a Gossip Girl impersonation yesterday made me laugh) but in this case, no, they are actually dangerous.

    What about all the people in that wedding party?? What about authorities that let that party happen?
