Alexander Zverev is in the midst of one of the best phases of his tennis career. Now, an addition is set to add to his personal life as well as since he will soon be a father! Sascha’s ex-girlfriend, Brenda Patea, revealed this news in a recent interview.
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.
Patea and Zverev were in a relationship for a year, before calling it quits in August. Patea said she and Zverev wanted different things from their lives. “There was a crisis before because we have different views on life. Anyone who lives by the side of an athlete has to submit,” Patea expressed.

Alexander Zverev is on a dream run
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.
