Australian Open puts anti-corruption unit into play

27 Dec 2007

As reported by Bloomberg: "Australian Open organizers established an anti-corruption commission and appointed an investigator to combat gambling and potential match-fixing at the season-opening Grand Slam tennis tournament.

"Tennis Australia said today it would also set up a telephone hotline to report alleged corruption, ban the unauthorized use of laptop computers courtside and increase restrictions on access to players.

"…The sport is taking measures against the threat of match- fixing after an Internet gambling site reported suspicious betting activity and more than a dozen players said publicly that they were approached to throw matches. The men's ATP Tour last month suspended Italy's Alessio Di Mauro for placing 120 online bets."
