LONDON (AP) — The Tennis Integrity Unit says Spanish player Guillermo Olaso has been banned from the sport for five years and fined $25,000 for match-fixing.

Olaso was found guilty of three corruption offenses in 2010, including directly or indirectly seeking to “contrive the outcome or any other aspect of any event.”

He was also found guilty of two counts of failing to report approaches to provide inside information or influence the outcome of any aspect of a match.

The TIU says the 236th-ranked player won’t have to serve the final 18 months of his ban if he has repaid the $25,000 fine by then and has attended anti-corruption and rehabilitation programs.
