Torre’s five-year suspension for anti-corruption breaches

Home » Torre’s five-year suspension for anti-corruption breaches

Argentinian tennis star Eduardo Agustin Torre has been given a five-year suspension following 35 breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme.


The ITIA confirmed the sanction was linked to a criminal case featuring a match-fixing syndicate in Belgium, the leader of which, Grigor Sargsyan, was handed a five-year custodial sentence.

Torre, who reached a career-high world singles ranking of 596 in September 2014, did not respond to the ITIA’s charges. The case was ruled on by independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer Amani Khalifa, who also issued Torre a fine of $35,000.

In failing to respond to the ITIA charges, Torre effectively admitted liability for all charges and acceded to sanctions.

The breaches included facilitation of wagering, contriving the outcome of matches, soliciting money or benefit to negatively influence a player’s best efforts, failure to report corrupt approaches and failure to report corruption offenses.

The suspension will run from the date of the decision – 26 April 2024 – and end at midnight on April 25, 2029.

During the period of ineligibility, Torre is prohibited from playing in, coaching at, or attending any tennis event authorised or sanctioned by the members of the ITIA – ATP, ITF, WTA, Tennis Australia, Fédération Française de Tennis, Wimbledon and USTA – or any national association.
