The Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) is to investigate suspicious betting patterns from a match at this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

The TIU has not said which match it is assessing, but said the probe is a “routine, confidential investigation”.

The TIU is already looking at the US Open first-round match between Vitalia Diatchenko and Timea Bacsinszky.

From July to September, the TIU said it received 96 alerts on suspicious betting activity, including two alerts from Wimbledon and the US Open.
