Three Tunisian tennis chair umpires have been banned for match-fixing after they were found guilty of intentionally entering incorrect scores during matches.

The International Tennis Integrity Agency said on Friday that Majd Affi has been banned for twenty years after being found guilty of twelve offenses relating to incidents between 2017 and 2020. Mohamed Ghassen Snene and Abderahim Gharsallah each received a seven-year penalty after being convicted guilty of four offenses related to a 2020 event in Tunisia.

According to the ITIA, the charges “relate to umpires changing scores entered into their computerized scoring equipment, which did not reflect the actual scores on the court.”

All three suspensions are retroactive to November 6, 2020.
