Konstantinos Mikos banned for life in Tennis


Friday, 5 May 2017 :  The world number 1,536 was investigated by the Tennis Integrity Unit and found guilty at a hearing on Thursday.

He approached fellow Greek player Alexandros Jakupovic in 2013, offering payment for the outcomes of nominated sets, and for games to be thrown.

Mikos, 25, also operated two betting accounts from which bets were placed between March 2012 and December 2013.

He is banned from all professional tennis with immediate effect and is not allowed to compete in, or attend, any tournament or event organised or sanctioned by the governing bodies of the sport.

Jakupovic has already been banned having been the subject of a separate TIU investigation in 2015.
