Russian tennis player Yana Sizikova was arrested in Paris on Thursday evening for sports corruption and fraud in an organized group. Sizikova, a 26-year-old doubles specialist, was taken into custody on Thursday night in relation to an investigation dating back to October for sports corruption and organised gang fraud. Sizikova was arrested shortly after losing her first-round doubles match at Roland Garros on Thursday. The arrest relates to last year’s tournament when bookmakers issued alerts for abnormal betting patterns during Sizikova’s first-round women’s doubles match alongside Madison Brengle of the United States, which they lost 7-6 (8), 6-4 to the Romanian duo of Andreea Mitu and Patricia Maria Tig. Sizikova had contacted tennis authorities last year and she provided them with an explanation which was deemed satisfactory at that time. She and her father were extremely when she was arrested. Sizikova has been released from police custody a day after her arrest. The Russian Embassy in France is taking the necessary measures to protect Sizikova’s rights.
