Oliver Anderson to face tennis disciplinary charges following completion of criminal proceedings in Australia
Australian tennis player Oliver Anderson was provisionally suspended from playing professional tennis in February 2017.
On May 23 he was fined A$500 and given a two-year good behaviour bond after admitting a match-fixing charge in Latrobe Valley Magistrates Court, Victoria, Australia.
Completion of criminal proceedings will now allow a disciplinary case to be brought against Mr Anderson for alleged breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program*.
The provisional suspension will remain in place until the conclusion of Tennis Integrity Unit investigations and the independent Anti-Corruption Hearing process that will follow.
* The Tennis Anti-Corruption Program is the code of conduct covering betting-related corruption in professional tennis. All players and associated Covered Persons sign-up to the code as a condition of their involvement in the sport
