PARIS — Kyrgyzstan’s Ksenia Palkina has been fined 100,000 US dollars and has been banned from playing tennis until at least 2029, the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) said on Friday.

The ban was for 16-years with six of them suspended and at 32-years-old Palinka has been set a date of 2029 for a comeback.

Palink admitted charges of match fixing at a French tournament and was detained by French police in November 2019, ITIA said.
