Unranked Thai player Jatuporn Nalamphun has been suspended for 18 months and fined $US5000 ($A7040) after being found guilty of betting on tennis matches and not cooperating with the investigation, the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) says.
“The 22-year-old admitted to three breaches of … the (anti corruption) program, which prohibits betting on tennis matches, between July and November 2014,” the TIU said in a statement on Wednesday.
Jatuporn was suspended for six months and fined $US5000 for the betting offences but was then handed a concurrent 18-month ban after being “found guilty of a further charge of failing to cooperate with a TIU Investigation”.
“The full and timely cooperation by participants in TIU investigations is of paramount importance in the efforts being made by the TIU to eliminate corruption in professional tennis,” anti-corruption hearing officer Ian Mill said.
