Terrible news for Chilean tennis. O Tennis Integrity Unit suspended the national Cristóbal Saavedra after considering him guilty of not cooperating with the investigation of the entity seeking to discover cases of corruption that occur in tennis.
Through a statement, the Tennis Integrity Unit has punished the national with two and a half years of suspension.
In addition, he received a fine of 8 thousand dollars and the prohibition of attending any tournament or event organized or authorized by government sports bodies.
Note that Saavedra has already been provisionally sanctioned on October 16, 2017.
If the penalty is normal, the national tennis player could return to the courts from 15 April 2020.
Recall that the case was brought to a disciplinary hearing in Miami on December 11, 2018, and sanctions were heard only recently.
