LONDON (AP) - Austrian player Daniel Koellerer has been banned for life and fined $100,000 by tennis authorities for attempting to fix matches.
Koellerer was ranked No. 55 in 2009. He was found guilty of three violations between October 2009 and July 2010 by a group affiliated with the men’s and women’s tours and the International Tennis Federation.
The investigation was done by the Tennis Integrity Unit, whose findings were considered at an independent anti-corruption hearing in London on April 27-28.
