ATP suspends Galimberti for gambling

LONDON, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Giorgio Galimberti was suspended for 100 days and fined $35,000 by the ATP for allegedly betting on tennis matches.

The ATP said an internal investigation showed that Galimberti bet on tennis during the period from June 2003 to January 2006.


Gayle David, an ATP official overseeing rules and competition, said the group's anti-corruption program "unambiguously states that gambling on any form of tennis matches will not be tolerated."

Galimberti is ranked 1,009th in the men's singles and hasn't played in a tournament since a first-round loss in a tournament in Italy on Sept. 10, 2007.
