News & Judgments
18 March 2019

Chilean tennis player Mauricio Alvarez-Guzman has received a lifetime ban for breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP).

Following a hearing in London, Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer Charles Hollander QC found that Mr Alvarez-Guzman attempted to contrive the outcome of an August 2016 ATP Challenger match in Meerbusch, Germany by offering another player €1,000 to lose a set. In the first case of its kind under the TACP, Mr Alvarez-Guzman has also been convicted for purchasing and attempting to purchase a wild card.

Kendrah Potts and William Harman of 4 New Square acted for the Professional Tennis Integrity Officers.

The Tennis Integrity Unit’s announcement can be found here.

A redacted version of the decision will be published in due course.
