Patea said she was 20 weeks along in her pregnancy. “I’m 20 weeks pregnant and I am expecting a child from Alex,” Patea said. However, the German model said she has had no contact with Zverev currently and does not plan to share custody with the German tennis superstar.

“That is out of the question for me,” Patea said further. She admitted that she was in a good enough position in her life to raise the child by herself. “The child was not planned, but I will do everything to ensure that it grows up in a harmonious environment. I am in the fortunate position of being able to raise the child by myself,” she added.

On the tennis front, Zverev has been enjoying a dream run. It all started with a run to the finals at the US Open 2020. He was in a great position to win the title before Dominic Thiem made a strong comeback to win a five-set thriller.

Later, at the French Open 2020, Zverev showed great form before talented teenager Jannik Sinner defeated him in four sets in the fourth round. Sascha recouped after an exhausting month and returned to play back-to-back events at home in Germany.

The German won both the ATP Cologne events. He defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime in the finals of the ATP Cologne 1 event. Just a week later, he dominated the in-form Diego Schwartzman in the ATP Cologne 2 event. Winning back-to-back events at home made it sweeter.
