Slovakian tennis player Baskova banned for match fixing

Slovakian tennis player Dagmara Baskova was banned for 12 years on Thursday for match-fixing offenses, the Tennis Integrity Unit said.

Baskova admitted to charges of five incidents of match fixing in 2017, the TIU said.  She was also fined $40,000 with all but $1,000 suspended and payable within 90 days. Baskova had a career-high WTA ranking of 1,117 in singles and 777 in doubles. She has since retired from the sport, the TIU said.
