Dec. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Spanish tennis player Guillermo Olaso was banned for five years and fined $25,000 after an investigation into match-fixing in 2010.

The London-based Tennis Integrity Unit said Olaso was found to have committed three offenses including directly or indirectly trying to “contrive the outcome or any other aspect” of an event. The TIU didn’t provide details of the 25-year-old’s case, saying in an e-mail that anti-corruption hearings are private.

The final 18 months of Olaso’s ban will be suspended if he attends a rehabilitation program, the unit said. Olaso, who turned professional in 2006, is ranked 236th in men’s singles.
