Pro Tennis Player Suspended for Betting on Matches

This week the International Tennis Integrity Agency announced that they've issued a three month suspension to pro player Hichem Yasri after he was found to have bet on tennis matches.

Yasri, who hails from Algeria, was found to have breached D.1.a. of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP) regulations. The rules stipulate that players may not bet on the outcome of any tennis match or competition.

The organization did confirm that Yasri didn't bet on matches he participated in and he didn't have any information on the matches in question. He may not play, coach or attend any sanctioned tennis matches until October 27th, as the ITIA backdated the suspension to July 28th. Yasri was also given a $5,000 fine, but this was suspended in lieu of him not committing any further violations.

Yasri is currently ranked the 1,864th player in the world.
