Egyptian Tennis Player Banned for Life for Fixing Matches

Cheating sucks. Honesty is in. Get with it.

Corruption in tennis is strictly chastised, and Karim Hossam was no excuse. Egyptian tennis player Karim Hossam, 24, has been banned for life by the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) on Tuesday from playing or attending any authorised tennis matches in the future. This ban took immediate effect, in addition to a $15,000 fine he was charged with.

The accusations made were under the pretext of match-fixing, placing bets, corrupt conduct, providing “inside information,” and not reporting bribery. The charges are based on Hossam’s time as a tennis player at ITF Futures Tournaments from 2013 to 2017.

Hossam was previously under a provisional suspension in June 2017, which prohibited him from participating in any authorised tennis event—whether competing or simply attending.
