LONDON - Russian tennis player Andrey Kumantsov has been banned from the sport for life for breaking rules on betting and match-fixing.

The Tennis Integrity Unit says on Tuesday that the 27-year-old Kumantsov was found guilty of 12 charges under the sport's anti-corruption program after committing a series of offences from 2010-13.

The ban applies with immediate effect.

Kumantsov, whose career-high ranking was No. 261 in 2010, has not played a match this year. He has career earnings of $103,856.

The integrity unit was formed by the ATP and WTA tours, the International Tennis Federation and the Grand Slam Committee.

Details of how Kumantsov broke the rules were not given.
