Dutch tennis coach Max Wenders has been banned from the sport for 12 years after admitting multiple match-fixing charges.

He must also pay a fine of 12,000 dollars, the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) announced on Wednesday.

Wenders also admitted to destroying evidence, it said.

“But he admitted to failing to report a corrupt approach.”
