Columbian player suspended under TIU


Here’s the rule, kids.

If the Tennis Integrity Unit tells you to come for an interview and surrender your mobile phone, you’d probably best do it.


Barlaham Zuluaga Gaviria begged off on the interview because of illness. He wouldn’t reschedule. He wouldn’t surrender his cell phone and when he finally did – it was a different phone. 

The result after a hearing April 29 is the 22-year-old Colombian received a three-year suspension, and a $5,000 fine

Zuluaga originally was suspended all the way back in July, 2017.

His career high of No. 1491 came as a 17-year-old, in 2003.
