The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) today confirms that Chinese tennis player Baoluo Zheng has been provisionally suspended from the sport, pending the full consideration of Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme (TACP) charges.
From 27 October 2022, the player is prohibited from competing in or attending any sanctioned tennis events organised by the governing bodies of the sport.
The provisional suspension was granted under section F.3 of the TACP 2022:
“The ITIA may at any time impose a Provisional Suspension on a Covered Person, including (i) before a Notice of Major Offense has been issued, (ii) before a Hearing or (iii) at any time after a Hearing but prior to the AHO’s issuance of a written Decision.”
The ITIA is an independent body established by the International Governing Bodies of Tennis to promote, encourage, enhance and safeguard the integrity of professional tennis worldwide.
