The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) today confirms that Mexican tennis player Mauricio Antonio Astorga Perez Pineda has been provisionally suspended from the sport by independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer (AHO) Janie Soublière, pending the full consideration of charges against him.

From 8 October 2021, the player is prohibited from competing in or attending any sanctioned tennis events organised by the governing bodies of the sport.

The provisional suspension was granted under section F.3 of the TACP 2021:

“The ITIA may at any time make an application to an AHO for a Provisional Suspension of a Covered Person, including (i) before a Notice of Major Offense has been issued, (ii) before a Hearing or (iii) at any time after a Hearing but prior to the AHO’s issuance of a written Decision. Provisional Suspensions (and challenges and reviews thereof under this Section F.3) shall ordinarily be determined on written submissions unless the AHO considers an oral hearing necessary.”

The International Tennis Integrity Agency is an independent body established by the International Governing Bodies of Tennis to promote, encourage, enhance and safeguard the integrity of professional tennis worldwide.
