Former Slovenian tennis player David Gorsic and inactive Australian official Steven Nguyen have both been sanctioned for tennis betting offences by the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA).  

Both men will be banned from officiating at or attending any tennis event organised by members of the ITIA for the duration of their respective sanctions.

Those members include the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), International Tennis Federation (ITF), Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), Tennis Australia, Fédération Française de Tennis, Wimbledon and the US Tennis Association (USTA). 

Gorsic received a six-month sanction – three of which are suspended – after he admitted to betting on tennis between 2017 and 2018.  

He was also fined $5,000, of which $3,500 is suspended, and his period of inactivity will span from 21 May 2024 to 20 August 2024.  

Nguyen meanwhile received a three-month sanction and a $2,000 fine, of which $1,400 is suspended, after he admitted to wagering on tennis matches between 2021 and 2023. 

His period of inactivity stretches from 23 May 2024 until 22 August 2024.  

Although both are guilty of historical offences, they were uncovered during recent ITIA investigations and therefore they have been sanctioned in accordance with ITIA’s current Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme (TACP) guidelines.  

During his career, Gorsic reached as high as 1,399 in the world singles rankngs, while Nguyen officiated at ITF junior, wheelchair and W25 events. 

Earlier this year, the ITIA handed a 10-year ban to French tennis player Leny Mitjana, as well as a 16-year ban to Bulgarian official Stefan Milinov for match-fixing offences.
