The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) announced on Thursday that a Moroccan tennis player has been found guilty of a record 135 match-fixing offenses and banned for life.

Additionally, Younes Rachidi, 36, who set a career high ranking of 473 in doubles, was fined $34,000.

He is not allowed to coach tennis or attend any tennis competition that has been approved by the sport’s governing bodies. The 135 offenses, according to the ITIA, “are the highest number by one individual ever detected.”

According to a spokesman for the anti-corruption body, Rachidi was involved in match-fixing with two Algerian players who were recently banned by the ITIA.

The cases were discovered after law enforcement investigations in Belgium were conducted in conjunction with the ITIA.
