Definitive sanction for Nick Lindahl. According to Global Express News, the Retired Australian player got fined for $US35,000 and banned for seven years after being found guilty of corruption offences in the sport.
Tennis Integrity Unit said through a statement that Lindahl was found guilty of charges of contriving or attempting to contrive the outcome of an event and failing to co-operate with a TIU investigation, and he proposed to lose a match at the Toowoomba Futures event in September 2013 in return for payment.
Brandon Walkin and Isaac Frost, both out of top 1.000 in the ATP Rankings, were involved in a match fixing as well and got punished too. Walkin got banned for six months, while Frost has been deemed to have served his suspension in the months after the Toowoomba event.
The bans do not end here. The Romanian player Alexandru-Daniel Carpen has been banned from playing professional tennis for life after admitting to a match-fixing charge, Tennis Integrity Unit Announced.
In October 2013 he asked to another player to fix a match in order to earn money through bets. Carpen hasn't any ranking now, but was No. 274 in doubles in 2015. ALSO READ: 2016 Australian Open junior champion charged with match fixing .
