The 24-year-old Gadomski was suspended for seven years and fined $15,000.

The 21-year-old Kocyla was suspended for five years and fined $15,000.

The cases were heard at a joint hearing in London last month.

The unit gave no specific details of the allegations against the players.

Gadomski was No. 739 and Kocyla No. 806 in the latest ATP rankings.
