Three months of the suspension and $4,500 of the fine are suspended on condition that he commits no further breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP).

Keane will serve a three month suspension, effective from March 3
0th 2020, and pay a fine of $500. Keane cooperated with the investigation, admitted his offenses and an investigation showed that none of the bets involved matches in which he played.

When interviewed as part of a Tennis Integrity Unit investigation into the case, Keane admitted to holding four betting accounts and to placing six bets on tennis matches between August 
18th 2019 and  September 18th 2019.

As a result, he is suspended from competing in, or attending any sanctioned event organised or recognised by the governing bodies of the sport from Monday, March 
30th, 2020 to Monday,  June  29th, 2020.
