Brenda Patea was Born in Berlin, Germany
Brenda Patea was born as Brenda Hubscher on September 2, 1993, in Berlin, Germany to a family of German- Romanian origin. Though the identity of her father is unknown, her mother is Heike Hunscher. Brenda appears to be close to her family as she often posts her mother’s pictures on her social media page with touching messages. However, the model has continued to keep her father’s identity a secret.
The German model was raised in Frankfurt an der Oder, eastern Germany alongside her older two brothers. One of her siblings named Tobias “Tobi” Hubscher is currently working as an engineer in Frankfurt an der Oder.
Brenda Patea met Alexander Zverev at a Café in Paris
Brenda Patea met Alexander Zverev during the 2019 Rolex Paris Masters in Paris. At the time they met, Brenda was on a business trip in Paris while Alexander was competing at the 2019 Rolex Paris Masters. Their first meeting happened on the 28th of October in a café where they initiated a conversation.
According to Brenda, they initially spoke in English until they realized they both speak German. At the time, Brenda had little interest in tennis. The only thing she knew about the sport was tennis legends Boris Becker and Steffi Graf, so she had no idea she was conversing with World No.7 tennis players. Getting to know Alexander opened up a pandora box of tennis knowledge, which the tennis player patiently and thoughtfully explained to her.
The pair grew attracted to each other and of course, they became closer with time even though Brenda was four years older than Alexander. A few months later, rumors of their relationship were confirmed when the German Model was spotted in the stands watching the world No.7 at the Mexican Open. Their relationship was short-lived as they dated less than 12 months before separating.
Brenda Patea and Alexander Zverev Called it Quits in August 2020
Shortly after their relationship news began to die down, the pair broke up in August 2020, once again making headlines and stirring the curiosity of fans. The pair confirmed their breakup by unfollowing each other and wiping out all traces of the memories they shared from their Instagram page.
After the breakup, Brenda revealed that she was expecting a child from Alex. She further declared that she intended to raise the baby on her own. She said:
“We currently have no communication with Alex, and frankly, I do not intend to share custody of my child with him, but I will do everything I can to ensure that (the child grows up) in a harmonious and appropriate environment.”
Her announcement led to many speculating that her refusal to share custody of their future child with Alexander was an indication that he had been unpleasant towards the model. Brenda stepped up to discredit these rumors and stated that their breakup was a result of individual differences.
The German Model Called Out Zverev for Lying About his Involvement with their Child
With a flair for the dramatic, the pair continued to engage the public while making headlines as some controversies arose. The breakup was far from friendly as Brenda blasted Alexander over his answers during an interview.
During the interview, Alexander told reporters that he was eagerly awaiting the birth of his child with the model. He said: “even though Brenda and I are no longer together, we have a good relationship and I will live up to my responsibility as a father. Together we take care of the little person who is about to grow.”
The German model seems to be having none of it as she publicly called him out and accused him of lying about his involvement in her pregnancy. When quizzed by fans about the statement made by the tennis player, she said she was fed up with the lies the tennis player constantly sprew about their relationship and she told fans that Alexander had nothing to do with her or the baby as they both have not been in touch for months.
Their Daughter Mayla was Born in 2011
The German Model welcomed a beautiful daughter with Alexander Zverev on March 11, 2021. Brenda shared the joyful news with a picture of the newborn on her Instagram page.
Earlier on in October 2020 when Brenda announced her pregnancy, she declared that she would not share the custody of her child with the tennis player. However, things changed after the birth of their child, as she allowed Alexander to co-parent the baby with her.
Brenda Patea was Romantically Involved with Turkish Model and Actor Baris Murat Yagci

After Baris, she dated another man whose identity remains unknown. Her relationship with the man was said to have lasted for a short period before she began dating Alexander in late October 2019.
Just like Brenda, Alex was newly out of a relationship with fellow Russian tennis player, Olya Sharypova. His relationship with Sharypova ended rather nastily, with Sharypova accusing him of physical and emotional abuse. Presently, Alexander is in a relationship with Sophia Thomalla, an actress and TV presenter.
