LONDON (AP) - Greek tennis player Alexandros Jakupovic has been banned from the sport for life for breaking rules on match-fixing.

The Tennis Integrity Unit says on Friday that 34-year-old Jakupovic was found guilty of five charges under the sport’s anti-corruption program.

Jakupovic, whose career-high ranking was No. 267 in 2008, played in two ATP challenger tournaments this season, losing both of his matches. He has career earnings of $116,707.

Details of how Jakupovic broke the rules were not given.
