Kicker looking for reduced suspension

In the wake of Marco Trungelliti’s courage in standing up to match-fixing, leading to the suspension of three of his countrymen, the youngest and highly-ranked of them is now cooperating. Nicolas Kicker, the top-100 player suspended for six years (three suspended) last May, may find his sentenced reduced, per La Nación. According to the original terms, Kicker could only return in May, 2021. If all goes well for him, he could be back in Jan. 2020. He’d be 28.There would be no protected ranking. So he would have to start from the bottom all over again.
