Tennis - Isaac Frost, an Australian tennis player ranked as high as No. 458 in singles in the world back in 2012 and No. 651 in doubles in 2011, has been sentenced to 220 hours of community service in the Brisbane Magsitrates Court on Thursday, after he pleaded guilty to fixing a Victorian tennis match and supplying drugs to friends.
Frost was charged after he pleaded guilty to conspiring with fellow Australian tennis player Olivier Anderson to fix a match at an ATP Challenger event in Victoria in 2016. Anderson was competing in the tennis match while Frost was said to faciliate the match-fixing.
Frost had also supplied Anderson with cannabis, according to the Magistrate. Magistrate Anthony Gett said that the actions of Frost "imperilled the ability of bet agencies to run a fair betting arrangement. Bona fide gamblers were deprived of the opportunity of betting on a bona fide tennis match.
[They then] met in Victoria to discuss further arrangements and an agreement was reached that Anderson would lose the first set of the match in Traralgon if the draw was favourable." Frost was also found guilty of possessing cocaine and supplying drugs including Ritalin and Oxicon to some players.
He last played on the professional tour in 2016 and has been working as a coach since then. He won 1 Futures singles title and 2 Futures doubles title during his career. Frost admitted that the case has damaged his career as a coach.
