“The case was ruled on by independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer Raj Parker and the sanction means that Gatica Avilés is prohibited from playing in or attending any tennis event sanctioned by the governing bodies of tennis for a period of three years, starting on 9 December 2022 until 8 December 2025,” the agency said in a statement.
The 26-year-old was also fined $5,000 for the fix.
Gatica Avilés also received a suspension in May for an anti-doping violation. According to Tennis Now, she tested positive for Boldenone, a substance that is on the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.
