German player Alexander Zverev faces a trial during this year’s French Open over domestic abuse allegations.
According to German court officials, the hearing starts on May 31st and Zverev does not have to appear in person.
In November, Zverev was given a penalty order and fined after being accused of physically abusing his ex-girlfriend.
Zverev denies the charges and has lodged an objection against the order, meaning he remains legally innocent and is not convicted until a final ruling.
“The defendant will, in principle, not have to appear in person because it is a hearing after he contested the penalty order,” a court spokesperson told BBC Sport.
