Russian Tennis player Yana Sizikova has been arrested amid allegations of match-fixing at the ongoing Roland Garros tournament in France.

Investigations over the incident were opened in October over claims the doubles match between Yana Sizikova and Madison Brugle and Romanian pair Andreea Mitu and Patricia Maria Tig was rigged.

A series of unusual bets around the second set of the match triggered an investigation, and particularly in the fifth game when Sizikova’s serve was broken.

Allegedly, ‘hundreds of thousands of euros’ were bet that the Russian would double fault on two occasions, which she did, and now Sizikova has been arrested.
