Tennis players investigated

BayRadio | January 10, 2019

Spanish police are investigating 28 professional tennis players for match-fixing, including one who participated in last year’s U.S. Open.
Authorities didn’t immediately disclose any of the names of those implicated in the operation that dismantled an Armenian organized group that allegedly bribed athletes for betting purposes.
Police say 15 people were arrested, including some of the players, after 11 houses were raided.
EU law enforcement agency Europol, which supported the operation led by Spanish authorities, says at least 97 matches from lower-tier “Futures” and “Challenger” tournaments were fixed.
