Mixed doubles pair David Marrero and Lara Arruabarrena have been cleared of match fixing allegations following the Australian Open.

An independent investigation has cleared four players from fixing a mixed doubles match at the Australian Open earlier this season.

Spanish duo David Marrero and Lara Arruabarrena were investigated following reports of suspicious betting patterns in a 6-0 6-3 opening round loss to Pole Lukasz Kubot and Czech Andrea Hlavackova.

S0me online betting for that match was suspended when suspicious patterns started to appear 13 hours before its scheduled start.

The defeated Spanish pair denied there was any fixing and their opponents supported the claims.

The Tennis Integrity Unit, which was formed in 2008 as a joint initiative of the ITF, ATP and WTA, deemed “no evidence of corrupt activity has been identified” following its investigation.
