TENNIS INTEGRITY UNIT
Sweden's Lucas Renard Disciplined After Admitting Tennis Corruption Offense
Lucard Renard Decision
by Press Release|
Swedish tennis player Lucas Renard has been suspended for six months and fined US$5,000 after admitting an offense under Article D of the 2011 Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program.
Four of the six months period of ineligibility will be suspended on the basis that the player commits no future violation of the Program, that he exhibits continuous good conduct and that he attends anti-corruption education training.
The case against 19-year old Mr Renard was based on the findings of a Tennis Integrity Unit investigation, which was then considered by an independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer.
The sanction applies with immediate effect and means that the player is not eligible to participate in any tournament or competition organised or authorised by the governing bodies of professional tennis.
Mr Renard’s offense contravened Article D.1.d of the Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program - ‘No Covered Person shall, directly or indirectly, contrive or attempt to contrive the outcome or any other aspect of any Event.’
Consistent with the confidentiality of the anti-corruption disciplinary process, no further details of the case will be made public.
The Tennis Integrity Unit is an initiative of the Grand Slam Committee, the International Tennis Federation, the ATP World Tour and the WTA as part of the Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program.
