Spanish tennis player Aaron Cortes has been suspended for a period of 15 years by the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) after admitting to 35 breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP).  

Following a thorough investigation conducted by the ITIA and law enforcement, Aaron Cortes, who reached a career-high world singles ranking of 955 in September 2017, admitted to 35 breaches of the TACP between 2016 and 2018, including contriving the outcome of events, accepting money to contrive the outcome of events, failure to report corrupt approaches, wagering on tennis, and providing money to tournament officials in exchange for a wild card. The 29-year-old Spanish player has been fined $75,000, of which $56,250 is suspended. Aaron Cortes co-operated fully with the ITIA investigation and accepted an agreed sanction, waiving their right to a hearing before an independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer.
