The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) has decided to ban Slovenian tennis umpire Marco Dakman for 10 years due to his involvement in betting on tennis matches.

Dakman admitted his guilt in four instances of rule violations, including placing bets on matches in which he officiated as an umpire.

The umpire agreed with the ITIA's decision for a 10-year ban and a $75,000 fine. Previously, Dakman worked at ITF, ATP, and WTA tournaments. He will be unable to officiate until March 7, 2034.

Earlier, there was information that the ITIA imposed sanctions on five tennis players for violating the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP). These sanctions were related to a recently concluded criminal case concerning a syndicate involved in organizing fixed matches in Belgium. The syndicate's leader, Grigor Sarkisyan, was sentenced to five years in prison. The tennis players received bans ranging from two years to a lifetime, along with fines ranging from $10,000 to $250,000.
