French tennis federation official banned for life
PARIS (AP) --- A French tennis official has been banned for life by the Tennis
Integrity Unit for several rule violations, including gambling.
The TIU says the charges against Morgan Lamri covered breaches of four articles
of its anti-corruption program in 2012 and 2013. These involve attempts to
influence the outcome of an event, to "facilitate any player not to use his or
her best efforts" and to "wager or attempt to wager" on the outcome of a match.
The 22-year-old Lamri has been a chair umpire on the futures and challenger
Lamri has denied corruption, but tells The Associated Press he bet on matches
he was not involved in.
