Serbian tennis player David Savic has been banned for life for attempting to fix matches. The 659th ranked Serb was also fined $100,000 after he was found guilty of three violations of the sport’s international anti-corruption program.

Savic never played any higher than the challenger circuit, and reached a career high of 363rd in the world. He is the second player ever to have a lifetime ban, after Austrian player Daniel Koellerer was the first to be banned for match fixing in May of this year.
