MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Integrity Unit gets another small fish

The Tennis Integrity Unit’s latest catch is Samuel Ribeiro Navarrete, a 24-year-old Spaniard with no current ranking.

Ribeiro Navarrete received an eight-month suspension and a $1000 fine. The TIU found he placed 28 bets on tennis online between January and March, 2013. None were on his own matches. 

The TIU’s last suspension came in August when Marius Frosa of Romania, 21, received the same sanctions. He had three accounts, and placed 12 bets during a one-year period ending June, 2015 – none of them on himself. 

Frosa was ranked outside the top 2,000 at the time. His career earnings are $2,320.
