Patricio Heras, a 29-year-old Argentine transplanted to Italy who is a viable but obscure player, was caught fixing the result of his first-round, 7-6 (6), 6-0 loss there to countryman Facundo Mena.
He also failed to report a number of approaches.
Heras is currently ranked No. 306 in singles (his high was No. 269 in 2013), and a career-best No. 323 in doubles after starting the season around No. 800.
He has never played a match at the ATP Tour level.
