In the new Kasatkina&Zabiiako video it really shows that Kasatkina has some major heat for Rafa still.

Rafa Nadal
@RafaelNadal
Hi all, during my last match in Brisbane I had a small problem on a muscle that as you know made me worried. Once I got to Melbourne I have had the chance to make an MRI and I have micro tear on a muscle, not in the same part where I had the injury and that’s good news.
Right now I am not ready to compete at the maximum level of exigence in 5 sets matches. I’m flying back to Spain to see my doctor, get some treatment and rest.

Doesn't really matter. Zverev will not receive another time violation warning and it will be nullified in the post match umpire report so that Zverev doesn't get a fine (if there even is a fine for this kind of warning)
