Tennis facing anti-corruption review

Tennis’ governing bodies have announced an independent review into their anti-corruption unit.

The decision was revealed at a press conference at the Australian Open in Melbourne on Wednesday.

The review comes in response of the BBC-BuzzFeed report released on the eve of the Australian Open that claimed tennis authorities failed to thoroughly pursue evidence of match fixing.

Philip Brook, chairman of the Tennis Integrity Board, said the governing bodies had committed to adopting all recommendations made by the review, which would be made public.

“We are determined to do everything we need to do to remove corruption from our sport, hence the announcement of this independent review and our commitment today to implement all of the recommendations of the review and to fund them in full,” Brook said.
