Argentine Tennis Player Banned For Anti-Corruption Offences

Argentine tennis star Federico Coria has been banned from the sports for eight months in addition to a fine of $10,000 after he was found guilty of anti-corruption offences.
Federico Coria is the brother of 2004 French Open finalist Guillermo Coria and six months of his ban and half of the fine slapped on him were suspended on the condition that there were no further offences by him.
The ban on the 26-year-old was issued on Thursday by the Tennis Integrity Unit with immediate effect meaning that he can resume playing from August 12.
The penalties were made by an independent anti-corruption official, Jane Mulcahy, who ruled three weeks ago that Coria failed to cooperate with a TIU investigation in addition to his failure to report corruption approaches in July and August 2015.
Coria is presently ranked 301 in the world, down from a career-high of 226 in October 2017.
