Kyrgyzstan tennis player suspended 16 years for match-fixing

The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) decided on Friday a 16-year suspension, six of them with deferment in compliance, and a fine of 100,000 dollars (94,700 euros) against Ksenia Palkina, from Kyrgyzstan, for having fixed matches .

Palkina, who reached 164th in the world ranking in 2010, had been provisionally suspended since November 2019. She could return to the circuit, at the earliest, in November 2029.

The 32-year-old player acknowledged having fixed matches in 2018 and 2019, the ITIA specified.

Results manipulation, with players receiving money for voluntarily losing a match, allows bettors to win large amounts of money, often using secondary tournaments.
