Tennis umpire suspended for not reporting corruption tries

Published Fri Jun 19 2020 21:12:09 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
A tennis chair umpire who has officiated at the U.S. Open and Paralympics has been suspended for 2 1/2 years for failing to report that he was approached about altering match scores and for not cooperating with the investigation. The Tennis Integrity Unit says Armando Belardi Gonzalez also was fined $5,000 as a result of the ruling — but he only needs to pay $1,000 of that unless he breaks anti-corruption rules again. Belardi Gonzalez is a 40-year-old from Venezuela who has been a bronze badge chair umpire since 2013. He worked at the 2017 and 2018 U.S. Open and the 2016 Rio Paralympics.
