After Maxence Broville failed to cooperate with a corruption investigation, the International Tennis Integrity Agency has banned him for 7 years.

Broville received a temporary suspension from the ITIA last June in connection with the corruption case. Since 20 June 2023, Broville has been banned from competing in any tennis event sanctioned by the ITIA.

This case is about charges relating to match-fixing that occurred in 2017 and 2018 Broville denies the charges. He held a high ranking in singles for his career of 708 by 2023.

Broville, according to ITIA’s investigation, did not cooperate with the ITIA. When asked by the ITIA to provide personal electronic devices to be examined as part of their investigation, Broville refused. They are violations of F.2.b. and F.2.d. of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme.

Broville was also fined EUR5,000 ($5,050/PS3,982/EUR4,650). Broville will be required to pay a EUR5,000 (PS3,982/EUR4,650) fine, which includes the time spent under his provisional suspension.

Tennis suspensions are continuing to pile up

The ITIA has sanctioned Broville in the past few weeks.

The Bosnian official Damjan Dejanovic has been suspended on a provisional basis due to corruption allegations that are still pending. ITIA has also suspended Bulgarian official Stefan Milanov, who was found guilty of corrupt offences.

ITIA also issued bans and suspended players for their involvement in a Belgian criminal case involving match fixing. The ITIA worked with Belgian authorities to give Grigor Sargsyan a 5-year prison sentence.

During Sargsyan’s November conviction, 16 tennis players were initially banned. The ITIA took similar actions against other players since then.

The French player Leny Mitjanam was also banned from playing for 10 years due to his involvement in match-fixing and corruption. Anis Ghorbel, a Tunisian footballer, was banned from playing for three years after he fixed matches between 2016 and 2017.
