TENNIS: Spanish player given five-year ban for match fixing

Published: Tuesday December 24, 2013 | 8:41 am Comments 0

Guillermo Olaso has been banned from tennis for five years and fined 15,300 for offences related to match fixing.

The Tennis Integrity Unit says Olaso was found guilty of contriving or attempting to contrive the outcome or any other aspect of any event.

The 25-yar-old Spaniard, ranked 236th in the world, was also punished for failing to report approaches to give information or influence any aspect of a match.

The Tennis Integrity Unit revealed the incidents occurred in 2010 but cannot say which matches.

Olaso will not have to serve the final 18 months of his ban if he has repaid the fine by that time and has attended anti-corruption and rehabilitation courses.
