USA Davis Cup captain Mardy Fish and former American doubles star Bob Bryan have been given suspended bans and fined for promoting a gambling company on social media.

The International Tennis Integrity Agency (IATA) said on Tuesday that the two Americans had been banned for four months – suspended pending any further breach – and fined $10,000 each.

Both men acknowledged the breaches and took the social media posts down immediately, the IATA said.

Covered persons rule prevents promotion of gambling

Fish, as captain, and Bryan, as part of the coaching team, were both included as “covered persons”, which means they have to adhere to anti-corruption rules, not promoting, facilitating or encouraging gambling on tennis

The pair have also agreed to work with the ITIA “to assist with education and prevention initiatives to highlight the importance of integrity in the game”, the IATA said.

The four-month suspended ban is back-dated to November 11, 2022.
