The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) today confirms that Bosnian national-level tennis official Damjan Dejanovic has been provisionally suspended from the sport, pending the full consideration of Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP) charges.
Since 8 January 2024, Dejanovic has been prohibited from officiating at or attending any sanctioned tennis events authorised or sanctioned by the members of the ITIA (ATP, ITF, WTA, Tennis Australia, French Tennis Federation, Wimbledon and USTA) or any national association.
The provisional suspension was imposed under Section F.3.b.i.4 of the TACP, and was not appealed by Dejanovic:
F.3.b.i.4: ‘There is a likelihood that the Covered Person has committed a Major Offense and in the absence of a Provisional Suspension, the integrity of tennis would be undermined and the harm resulting from the absence of a Provisional Suspension outweighs the Hardship of the Provisional Suspension on the Covered Person.’
The ITIA is an independent body established by its tennis members to promote, encourage, enhance, and safeguard the integrity of professional tennis worldwide.
