Bulgarian player Tarpov given 3-month suspended suspension

LONDON (AP) The Tennis Integrity Unit says Bulgarian player Danail Tarpov has been given a suspended three-month suspension for links to an online betting account.

The 27-year-old Tarpov, ranked 1,109 in singles, was also fined 5,000 euros ($5,500), but that was also suspended for two years.

The TIU says an investigation found that Tarpov created an online betting account for the son of his coach at the time, Novolai Ivanchev. The TIU adds there was no evidence of betting linked to match-fixing or other corruption offenses.
