Slovenian tennis official Marko Ducman has been suspended for 10 years and six months by the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) due to multiple breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP).

Ducman, operating at the international level, admitted to four TACP breaches, which included engaging in tennis match wagering and manipulating match data for betting purposes.

As part of the sanction, Ducman cooperated with the ITIA investigation and accepted the imposed penalty, forgoing the option of a hearing before an independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer.

Having been under provisional suspension since 8th September 2023, Ducman's served time during this period will count towards the overall suspension.

The suspension will conclude on 7th March 2034.

Throughout the suspension period, Ducman is prohibited from participating in any tennis event authorised by ITIA members, including the ATP, ITF, WTA and tournaments like the Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open, along with any national association-sanctioned events.

This suspension follows prior cases of integrity breaches within tennis. In September 2022, US tennis player Adam El Mihdawy received a three-and-a-half-year ban after admitting to match-fixing allegations related to a 2016 tournament in Mexico.

Additionally, Bolivian chair umpire Heriberto Morales Churata faced a six-year ban in May 2023 for manipulating scores at ITF World Tennis Tour events.
