Two tennis players banned for betting corruption offenses

Tags: Calum Puttergill, Mihaita Damian, tennis.
Posted on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 by "T".

Two pro tennis players have been officially banned for corruption offenses right after they have been discovered to have bet on matches. The two players were Calum Puttergill of Australia and Mihaita Damian of Romania.

According to the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), 23-year-old Mihaita Damian has been fined 5,000 Euros ($5,300) and banned for one year for placing about 199 bets on games from 2011 to 2013. He is number 1,645 in the doubles rankings.

The TIU also announced on January 13, Friday, that 23-year-old Australian player Calum Putterfill has also been fined $10,000 and banned for six months for placing bets on tennis from 2012 to 2014 with the use of online betting accounts. His sanctions would be halved if he no longer commits other violations before June 11. In the world of tennis, he is ranked number 1,207.

Neither player bet on the games they have played; however, their suspension applies immediately.
Under TIU rules, all players are explicitly forbidden from betting on any type of professional tennis match anywhere in the world.

i think Calum was smarter ,not only that he got half of Damian suspention but he eventualy won more money 2x Damian did (10k) in a same 2 yers period betting.So i gwes the suspention was made of the amont of betts in that period (Damian 199+ and maybe Calum just half of them ...???) In my opinion the should have gain same suspention (rather or not Damian lost much more of his bets or Calum got better odds resulting the profit they acctualy made).

You are a professional athlete. Why risking your whole career for this.
Does it worth it eventually, even if your rank is 1000+ Smile
It is a short time one and probably they wont mind for it Smile

the ban is gonna be tough for them to take as in Tennis you have to play to win cash it's not like in football where you are club contracted and for sure if they were football players and take a 6 months ban they would have been released but would get compensation...

this is a little bit harsh to be honest- the thing is and it is clearly stated that they were not betting on the games where they were playing, so basically they were just using their experience, know-how of the game to gain an edge over the bookies, nothing criminal here, oh and it's so easy to bet using some random tramps account... situation not gonna be solved in any time soon.

If these players' are not betting on the games they are involved in, i cannot see why they have been banned for six months. It does seem very harsh but they are the rules

yeah,for me its strange why players can bet on games or any other sport where they dont play!why they cant be like other normal people on earth!if he didnt bet on this match,he is doing everything right,but if he bet on this match to lose and he lost it,ofcourse he must be suspended!

insider knowledge, you have an advantage "normal" people don't have. The same goes for people who have a lot of shares. When they get a certain political function they must sell their shares, or else they can use their knowledge or they can manipulate rules, to get better. This is not fair to the "normal" men. At first it looks like bullcrap, but when you think about it. it's kind of logical. But if you were a Tennis player, you want just some extra money like every one else.

tennis players who have a rating ialenky an opportunity to earn money on your game .. probably the only way ... but it is certainly illegal and a criminal ... I can understand these players but I certainly do not condone .. play nice and improve your game
 Gerimantas1/19/2017 4:19:01 PM GMT
Corruption in any sports is a bad thing and it ix good that someone is fighting against it, this can be a lesson for the rest of players who have similar ideas anout placing bets when it is illegal to do so. They are not bery well known so we can hope that better players are not doing the same bad thing.
 pochui1/20/2017 9:59:56 AM GMT
well sure there is a point that Ingrind is trying to raise here- insider trading is usually a bad thing for the remainder of unsuspecting public, but this is more like a battle between bookies and punters, so the losing side here are the bookies and they are probably the ones that are crying loud and lobbying politics to take action against such "criminals".

because anything beyond top 10 doesnt earn that much. just like if you play football in the 2nd or 3rd league - with exceptions, like the english 2nd league.

ingrid is right regarding insider knowledge. its not only a rumor, theres alot fraud going on at tennis.
players lose on purpose..

to be honest, i think any sport is fuked up.

well he could always give money to friend or some relative and then he could be on games that he say and nobody could know that he gived informations to this person!but if he register online with his name,that he had problems!

of course. and probably many do this. but its the same as if you say: "we dont need traffic lights, because accidents happen anyways".

beside that, i wouldnt trust all of my friends, even some family members. once you get in trouble with them they might blackmail you lol. greed, envy..
there is always a risk.

Of course athletes have done it maaaaaannyyy times in the past... Nothing new there. And I am sure most of them never got caught. I mean, if you're Andy Murray, and you're 16 to 1 on a guy, you can have someone place bets against you on a bunch of websites/bookmakers and make more profit by losing than you would be winning the whole tournament.

Just like Murray lost today 16 to 1 favorite against Zverev. I actually had a 1.50$ bet on him and made 20 bucks Big Smile
 dule-vu1/22/2017 12:16:35 PM GMT
Yeah T3ddyKGB,who know what can happen and that somebody blackmail him after few years,but at least he wouldnt have anything on his name,everything would be on other person!or just go in betting shop where nobody know who you are and put bets!
