Piotr Gadomski disciplined for breach of seven year corruption ban
Polish tennis player Piotr Gadomski has received an 18 months suspension after he was found to have breached the terms of an existing ban for corruption offences*.
Mr Gadomski admitted to attending the Wimbledon qualifying competition at the Roehampton sports ground in south west London in June 2016.
By doing so he violated the terms associated with an earlier seven year suspension imposed in September 2015, that prohibit him from attending any professional tennis events organised or sanctioned by the governing bodies of the sport.
This breach is a new and additional corruption offence that was investigated by the Tennis Integrity Unit and considered by independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer Professor Richard H McLaren.
His decision extends the original seven-year ban by a further period of 18 months. However, it is suspended provided that no further breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program take place during the remainder of the original suspension, or the subsequent period of 18 months.
Mr Gadomski, now 26, reached a career-high singles ranking of 338 in April 2014.
Professor McLaren’s full decision in this case will be published in due course on the TIU website (www.tennisintegrityunit.com).
