MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Diaz-Figueroa nailed for match fixing

Christopher Diaz-Figueroa isn’t a household name in tennis.

His career-high singles ranking of No. 326 came seven years ago.

But the 28-year-old is a fairly big deal at home in Guatemala, where he’s acknowledged as the best player the country has produced. He’s gone 41-21 in Davis Cup since his debut in 2009.

Currently ranked No. 293 in doubles, Diaz-Figueroa won three Futures events tis summer.

That’s over, for now. Diaz-Figueroa was pinched by the Tennis Integrity Unit for match-fixing. He got three years and a $5,000 fine.

The third year and the fine will be waived if no further breaches.
