The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) can today confirm that French tennis player Maxence Broville has been suspended from the sport for a period of seven years and fined $5,000 for failure to co-operate with an ITIA investigation.
Broville, who held a career-high world singles ranking of 708 in 2023, denied all charges related to the fixing of matches in 2017 and 2018. A hearing was held before independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer (AHO) Charles Hollander on 5 January 2024.
AHO Hollander found Broville liable for breaches of F.2.b and F.2.d of the TACP, which relate to the failure to co-operate with an ITIA investigation, including refusal to submit personal devices for examination when issued a written request to do so by ITIA investigators.
Broville has been provisionally suspended since 20 June 2023, and time served under provisional suspension will be credited against their period of ineligibility. As such, their suspension will end on 19 June 2030.
During the period of ineligibility, the player is prohibited from playing in, coaching at, or attending any tennis event 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 ITIA is an independent body established by its tennis members to promote, encourage, enhance, and safeguard the integrity of professional tennis worldwide.
