Alexander Zverev and his girlfriend Sophia Thomalla stole the spotlight on the red carpet at the annual Ein Herz für Kinder (A Heart for Children) Fundraising Gala in Berlin, Germany.Zverev concluded his 2023 season with a group-stage exit at the ATP Finals. Prior to commencing his pre-season training, the German enjoyed some time off with Thomalla in the Maldives, frequently sharing glimpses of their sun-soaked vacation on social media.
The couple arrived in Berlin, Germany after their Maldives getaway, gracing the red carpet at Studio Berlin Aldershof for the fundraising gala. Alexander Zverev turned heads in an eye-catching rust-colored suit, paired with a red and black patterned turtleneck.Meanwhile, Sophia Thomalla looked glamorous in a sheer black lace top and complementary black silk skirt. Although their outfits differed in color, the couple coordinated with matching slick, pulled-back hairstyles.Thomalla shared highlights from their red carpet appearance on social media and expressed her appreciation for the charity’s continued efforts to help children in need.
“Thank you for all your generous donations! Like every year – despite challenging times – I continue to get impressed by the desire to help children in need,” she captioned her Instagram post.
Although Thomalla wore high heels, she was still dwarfed by Alexander Zverev’s imposing 6’6″ build. This hilariously resulted in the top of his head being cropped out of a full-length picture of them together.
“Sascha is so big, he doesn’t even fit in the photo,” she joked on her Instagram story (translated from German).
Thomalla also shared a sneak peek of Zverev taking the stage to play table tennis against a young girl, who thoroughly outplayed him.Sophia Thomalla’s Instagram stories
