Interesting stuff in tennis is happening right now.

Sascha Zverev has just announced that he is in a legal battle with his former manager Patricio Apey and there are some rumors around that the German sensation will be managed by Roger Federer’s company Team8, a joint venture between the Swiss and his manager Tony Godsick.

Why Zverev may partner with Federer’s company

In announcing the lawsuit, Zvererv confirmed that he has no management company right now “No, there’s a stall like in Indian Wells. I do not have new management. First of all, I would like to clarify everything in peace.”
