World no.659 David Savic of Serbia, who received a lifetime ban for attempting to fix matches is planning to appeal against the decision. TIU (Tennis Integrity Unit) found him guilty and fined him $100,000.
“I was obviously chosen as a scapegoat. Without any concrete evidence, I became a drastic example for other players.” said Savic.
He is the second player to get a lifetime ban. The Austrial Daniel Koellerer was banned in May this year.
