Three Australian tennis players have been found guilty of corruption by the sport’s international integrity watchdog, only days after another promising junior was charged with match fixing.
A Tennis Integrity Unit investigation also revealed that the only confirmed criminal case of tennis match fixing in Australia was significantly wider than was first thought, raising further questions about the conduct of the nation’s young players.
The TIU confirmed in a statement that Nick Lindahl, Brandon Walkin and Isaac Frost were all found to have committed corruption offences in relation to a match at a tournament in Toowoomba in 2013.
Lindahl, 28, was banned for seven years and fined $US35,000 ($48,000) for his role in the fix, which occurred at a Futures tournament in Toowoomba in September, 2013.
