Sophia Thomalla (33) spoke openly about her relationship with tennis Olympic champion Alexander Zverev (25). In the documentary "ZVEREV – The Unfinished" that was released on RTL on Sunday, the actress and TV presenter says about the two coming together: "It's not a romantic story." We met through friends and after a while found each other. "Sometimes you talk to each other and think: 'Joah, something can happen.' And then it suddenly happens," said Thomalla. "It wasn't love at first sight."
In the approximately 90-minute documentary, Zverev gives rare insights into his private life and that of his family. The focus is on Zverev's way back to the tennis court after his serious foot injury in the semifinals of the French Open at the beginning of June last year.
