Yana Sizikova Released from Police Custody: French Open Match-Fixing Case
Yana Sizikova, a Russian tennis player has been released from police custody a day after she was arrested as part of an investigation into match-fixing at last year’s French Open.
She was released without being charged. The 26-year old, who is also ranked 101st in doubles, seemed to be shocked by the allegations, as stated by her lawyer. The investigation was announced shortly after Sizikova and the American player Madison Brengle lost to the Romanians Andreea Mitu and Patricia Maria Tigin in the tournament’s opening round.
Suspicions were reportedly raised after betting companies noticed hundreds of thousands of euros had been wagered on a break of serve in the second set. Despite Sizikova’s release on Friday, the investigation is continuing.
