Who’s Benjamin D’Hoe? He bets

In the ongoing battle to curb the scourge of match-fixing, the Tennis Integrity Unit has suspended one Benjamin D’Hoe.

In a universe where whistle-blower Marco Trungelliti is having a tough time, the TIU has given D’Hoe, a 22-year-old Belgian with no ATP ranking and an ITF ranking of 386, a six-month suspension and $3,000 fine for betting on tennis.

Most of it (all but a month and $500) could be suspended.

D’Hoe self-reported. He placed over 900 (!) “mostly low-value bets” on pro matches during a 27-day period in 2017. None of them were on his matches.

We all feel safer now, right?
