Baskova Banned 12 Years for Match Fixing

Corruption has cost Dagmara Baskova her tennis career.

The 28-year-old Slovakian baseliner has been banned for 12 years and fined $40,000 after an investigation by the Tennis Integrity Unit uncovered five incidents of match fixing Baskova in 2017.

The TIU announced Baskova admitted the charges and Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer Ian Mill ruled that she should be prohibited from playing in or attending any tennis event authorised or sanctioned by the governing bodies of tennis for a period of 12 years.

The majority of the fine is suspended, with $1,000 payable within 90 days.
