Tennis star has clear ideas: What role should Sophia play in the Zverev documentary Sports

All tennis fans can look forward to this!

From March 19th, the documentary “Zverev – The Unfinished” about Olympic champion Alexander Zverev (25) will be running on the RTL+ streaming portal.

The documentary accompanies the hamburger in the fight for the comeback after his severe ankle injury and against the fear of remaining unfinished forever.

In addition to brother Mischa (35), mother Irina (55), commentator Matthias Stach (60) as well as Novak Dokovic (35) and Dominic Thiem (29), girlfriend Sophia Thomalla (33) should also have a say in the documentary. The presenter and Zverev made their relationship public in 2021.

But: It is still unclear what role Thomalla will play and what exactly will be seen. Because according to BILD information, both Sascha and Mischa have not yet seen the documentation – and have not yet released it either!

Only one thing is clear: The Zverev side wants the documentary to focus on the sporty, the injury and the comeback path. It shouldn’t be a family or love documentary with Thomalla.

At the French Open last year against Rafael Nadal (36), Zverev twisted his ankle badly and had to give up the semifinals in the second set. The Olympic champion had to have an ankle operation and was then absent due to bone edema. The documentation has accompanied him on the way to his comeback in recent months.

As the broadcaster further reports, the German number one speaks “more intimately than ever before about the biggest mistake of his life, his childhood and what really drives him”.

Zverev also explains why doctors actually thought a tennis career was out of the question. Background: Zverev has been suffering from diabetes for years. In August he even founded a foundation that works for people with diabetes.

In 2021 Zverev won the Olympic gold medal in Tokyo and won the ATP finals for the second time in the same year after 2018. In total, the Hamburger has been able to celebrate 19 tournament wins so far – but he is still missing a triumph in one of the four Grand Slam tournaments.

At the end of last year, Zverev celebrated his comeback after the injury at the United Cup and definitely wants to reach for great success this year.
