Tennis set for anti-corruption review

Tennis’ governing bodies are expected to announce an independent review into their anti-corruption unit.

An Associated Press source says the review is to be announced at a press conference at the Australian Open in Melbourne on Wednesday.

International Tennis Federation president David Haggerty, ATP Executive chairman and president Chris Kermode and Wimbledon chairman Philip Brook will front the press conference at 10.30am.

The trio are members of the Tennis Integrity Board, with Brook as chairman, a rotating position.

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.
