Tennis player penalized for betting

For violating the International Tennis Federation rules, Dutch tennis player Yannick Ebbinghaus, has been penalized with $10,000 and a 6-month ban from playing tennis. According to the International Tennis Federation, the player accepted the 67 violations he has been accused of between May 2012 and February 2013.

The ITF proposed that three months of his suspension could be forgiven if the player attends an anti-corrupt education programme and if he’s no longer involved in further violations. Also, half of the fine will be ceded as long as the 23-year-old player works along with the tennis integrity unit in teaching others about betting.

Tennis rules state that players are not allowed to place bets on matches. Ebbinghaus stands No. 1,158 in the ATP rankings.
