    LONDON: The Tennis Integrity Unit has banned Bulgarian player Aleksandrina Naydenova for life and fined her $150,000 for match-fixing offenses.

    Naydenova had partaken in match-fixing activity multiple times between 2015 and 2019, the anti-corruption body said in a statement Friday.

    The 28-year-old Naydenova, whose highest WTA singles ranking was 218, had been provisionally suspended Dec. 27 last year prior to a disciplinary hearing.

    The TIU said Naydenova committed 13 breaches of the Tennis Anti-corruption Program with 12 of them relating to match-fixing and one relating to several incidents of non-cooperation with the investigation.

    The sanction means that Naydenova is permanently prohibited from playing in or attending any tennis event authorized or sanctioned by the governing bodies of tennis.
