David Savic given life ban

Serbian David Savic receives a life ban from tennis for attempting to fix matches.

Serbian tennis player David Savic has received a life ban from tennis for attempting to fix tennis matches.

The world number 659 was also fined $100,000 (£64,200) by the Tennis Integrity Unit.

The 26-year-old was found guilty of three violations of the sport's international anti-corruption programme.

Savic becomes the second player to ever receive a life ban after Austrian Daniel Koellerer was found guilty of similar charges in May.
