Alexander Zverev returned to the tennis courts after having no major impact from his recent angry tirade on the Mexican Open.

Zverev defeated Thiago Seyboth Wild of Brazil at the Davis Cup World Group Qualifiers yesterday. The German appeared relatively calm on his return, beating Seyboth Wild 6-4, 6-2 to put Germany 1-0 ahead of Brazil. This was his first match since he was kicked out of the Mexican Open for violent behavior towards the chair umpire.

During his doubles game in Acapulco with Marcelo Melo against Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara, Zverev was visibly frustrated by a call from the lines umpire and lashed out at the chair umpire with an explosive-laden tirade for failing to override the call. Zverev didn’t end his outbursts there himself, after the end of the game he hit the chair umpire’s stand with his bat. For his violent behavior, the German was suspended from the tournament and fined $40,000 and forfeited $30,000 in prize money and ranking points.

The world No. 3 is also currently under investigation over domestic violence allegations at the hands of his ex-girlfriend Olya Sharypova. Zverev’s current girlfriend Sophia Thomella has sided with him despite all the controversy and furore surrounding the Olympic champion. . She was delighted with his return and was thrilled with his Davis Cup performance. She took to Instagram to post a shot of Zverev and captioned it “Machine,” suggesting his performance is on par with a machine.

Zverev previously expressed his displeasure with the new Davis Cup format, saying he would never perform in it. But he made a surprising about-face and decided to play for Germany just a few days after his disqualification in Acapulco.

Until now, Zverev hasn’t been faced with any further sanction and if the situation stays the same, he’ll be allowed to participate in the one Indian Wellsnext week starts

Zverev’s sanctions were criticized by numerous pundits and tennis players as it was seen as a rather soft punishment for Zverev’s behavior. Serena Williams even called for double standards on the sanctions imposed on Zverev. Williams was sentenced to two years’ probation and a $175,000 fine for “aggravated conduct” during her semifinals at the 2009 US Open Kim Clijsters. Mats Wilander and Patrick McEnroe demanded a ban against the German.
