Fritz's Girlfriend Takes Dig At Zverev Over Domestic Abuse Allegations

Fritz's Girlfriend Takes Dig At Zverev Over Domestic Abuse Allegations

by Nurein Ahmed

Taylor Fritz's girlfriend, Morgan Riddle, took aim at Alexander Zverev on social media over his recently concluded domestic abuse case.

Fritz and Zverev played out a thrilling five-set match in the fourth round of the 2024 Wimbledon Championships. The American World No. 12 recovered from two sets deficit to win 4-6, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3 in three and half hours.

It is the 11th time that a player has fought back from 0-2 sets to win in five at this year's Championships, extending a new Open Era record at Wimbledon.

However, shortly after the match, Fritz's social media influencer partner, Riddle, sparked a feud between her boyfriend and the German star on now-deleted Instagram posts.

In the first post, Riddle shared a photo she captured of Centre Court while watching from the coaching box with the message, "When ur man wins 4 the girls," and the second one, a video of herself dancing in a post-victory celebration and wrote, "cheer loud ladies.''

The two posts appeared to mock Zverev, who has previously been accused of domestic abuse by two of his ex-girlfriends. The World No. 4 faced a trial in May but agreed to an out-of-court settlement with Brenda Patea, who is the mother of his three-year-old daughter Mayla.

The case was eventually dropped last month, although Zverev was instructed to pay €150,000 to the state and €50,000 to charitable organizations. The court did not convict him.

The 2024 Roland Garros runner-up was playing on an injured knee after he slipped during his third-round win over Cameron Norrie and was not playing in full health, as he stated after the defeat to Fritz.

He was also unhappy with how some members of Fritz's entourage handled their celebrations courtside during the match, which boiled down to a long and tense exchange between the players at the net.

Zverev, however, clarified that he was on good terms with the American player but not some members of his team.
