A new case of match fixing came to the spotlight the last weeks, with three Australian tennis players being involved in this situation. A trial was held and those three athletes received large fines and bans from the sport after being found guilty of match fixing. The idea of the bans and fines is about a message that is necessary to be send to all the athletes will have in mind getting involved in match fixing.
Nick Lindahl, Brandon Walkin and Isaac Frost were found guilty. Lindahl received a huge 7 year ban from professional tennis tournaments and a 47.000$ fine as well. Of course Lindahl may not care about the bam, since he has retired since 2013. Walkin was banned for 6 months, but his punishment was suspended and he will be free to compete so long as he stays out of further trouble. Frost had actually already served a one-year suspension back in to 2013-2014 season for his role in the scandal. He was initially accused of refusing to cooperate with the investigation by refusing to hand his cell phone over to investigators.
