Italian Daniele Bracciali has made 'partial admissions' during interrogation that could see prosecutors investigating match-fixing in tennis summon other players, including retired Swede Tomas Nydahl, reports in Italy said on Thursday.

Bracciali and his occasional doubles partner Potito Starace are being investigated for corruption after intercepted internet conversations claiming they sold matches were reported in the Italian media several weeks ago.

But after questioning Bracciali earlier this week, prosecutors are now probing "irregularities in many other matches", according to Gazzetta dello Sport daily.

Bracciali, a former doubles player for Italy in the Davis Cup, and Starace were among five players - including Alessio Di Mauro, Giorgio Galimberti and Federico Luzzi - handed bans in 2007-08 by the ATP Tour ranging from six weeks to nine months for illegal betting.

The 36-year-old Bracciali earlier this week made "partial admissions" under interrogation from federal prosecutors, according to Gazzetta's report.

It said prosecutors partially discredited Bracciali's testimony because it "did not implicate other players".
