Authorities promise fight after match-fixing allegations at Australian Open


Tennis Australia has vowed to continue its fight against corruption in the sport after allegations of suspected match-fixing at the Australian Open.

Betting on a first-round mixed doubles match at the tournament on Sunday was suspended by one website after suspicious activity.

It came just days after a report from BuzzFeed News and the BBC alleging tennis authorities have failed to act upon repeated warnings regarding match-fixing, a claim the ATP rejected.

In a statement on Monday, Tennis Australia said: "Tennis Australia, along with the other governing bodies of tennis, will continue to work closely with the relevant police authorities and the Tennis Integrity Unit in regard to integrity matters.

"The TIU has again confirmed today that it is its policy to review and investigate every allegation of corruption in tennis.

"The TIU does not comment on the progress of any investigation until and unless there is a sanction determined.

"Tennis Australia can only reiterate that we are unable to comment on any ongoing TIU investigations."
