Swedish tennis player Renard handed 6-month ban
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - Swedish teenage tennis player Lucas Renard has been given a six-month suspension after admitting he violated the sport’s anti-corruption rules.
The Tennis Integrity Unit said Friday that the 19-year-old Renard also was fined $5,000, but that four months of the ban were suspended on condition he attends anti-corruption education training.
The tennis body said the 882nd-ranked Renard had broken a rule stating that no player can “contrive or attempt to contrive the outcome” of a match. It did not specify what he had done.
Renard has so far spent most of his career playing on lower-tier circuits.
The suspension goes into effect immediately.
