Artboard 2 Sanctioned Player

Name: Lucas Renard

Age: 19

Nationality: Swedish

Fine Received: $ 5,000

Punishment: Sanction Spent

Swedish tennis player Lucas Renard has been suspended for six months and fined US$5,000 after admitting an offense under Article D of the 2011 Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program. 

Four of the six months period of ineligibility will be suspended on the basis that the player commits no future violation of the Program, that he exhibits continuous good conduct and that he attends anti-corruption education training.

The case against 19-year old Mr Renard was based on the findings of a Tennis Integrity Unit investigation, which was then considered by an independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer.

The sanction applies with immediate effect and means that the player is not eligible to participate in any tournament or competition organised or authorised by the governing bodies of professional tennis.
