Daniel Koellerer, manager disciplined
LONDON -- Former top-60 player Daniel Koellerer and his manager, Manfred Nareyka, have been placed on two years' probation because Koellerer's personal website listed odds for matches and had links to sites for placing bets.
The Tennis Integrity Unit, the sport's anti-corruption group, said Thursday that Koellerer and Nareyka "admitted" breaking rules about "facilitating betting."
If found to violate anti-corruption rules in the next two years, Koellerer, a 27-year-old Austrian ranked 134th, would be fined about $19,000 and suspended for three months. Nareyka would be barred from access to tournaments for a year. Otherwise, the penalties would expire.
Koellerer was ranked 55th in 2009, when he reached the U.S. Open's third round.
