Tennis: Andrea Rita suspended for 15 months

February 26, 2024

The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) has announced that 23-year old Italian tennis player Andrea Rita has been suspended for a 15 month-period after admitting to breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP). 

The player, who reached a career-high ITF singles ranking of 1712 in June 2023 and is unranked on the ATP Tour, admitted to four breaches of the TACP between 2018 and 2020, including wagering on tennis matches and the failure to report a corrupt approach. The player has been fined $5,000, of which $4,000 is suspended. 

Andrea Rita 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. His period of ineligibility started on January 26 and ends on April 25 2025. During the period of ineligibility, Andrea Rita is prohibited from playing in, coaching at, or attending any tennis event authorized or sanctioned by the members of the ITIA (ATP, ITF, WTA, Tennis Australia, Fédération Française de Tennis, Wimbledon and USTA) or any national association.
