Italian tennis players, Daniele Bracciali and Potito Starace, have been handed over a life by the Italian Tennis Federation for their alleged involvement in match fixing.

According to Al Jazeera, the duo has been accused of corruption for fixing the outcomes of matches on the tour, and is consequently facing charges of criminal association.

Besides, Bracciali (37) and Starace (34) have also been penalized 40,000 and 20,000 euros respectively for their offence.

However, Italian Tennis Federation President Angelo Binagi was hopeful that the duo will manage to demonstrate their innocence.

“We can only hope that Bracciali and Starace manage to demonstrate that they haven’t committed these serious acts that the tribunal has convicted them of,” he said.
