The Ten­nis In­tegrity Unit says no ev­i­dence of cor­rup­tion was found af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a mixed dou­bles match at this year’s Aus­tralian Open that had re­port­edly at­tracted sus­pi­cious bet­ting pat­terns. A state­ment emailed by TIU spokesman Mark Harrison said “no fur­ther ac­tion will be taken against any player in­volved in the match,” in which Lukasz Kubot [pic­tured] and An­drea Hlavack­ova beat David Mar­rero and Lara Ar­ru­abar­rena. The state­ment added: “TIU in­ves­ti­ga­tions not only root out cor­rupt prac­tices, but also sup­port play­ers who are the sub­ject of un­proven spec­u­la­tion.” Dur­ing the Aus­tralian Open, ten­nis came un­der scru­tiny af­ter re­ports the sport’s au­thor­i­ties ig­nored ev­i­dence of match-fix­ing.
