NSW Police charge Nick Lindahl with match-fixing

New South Wales Police have charged 2006 Australian Open junior boy’s finalist Nick Lindahl (pictured) and two other men with attempting to fix a September 2013 tennis match. ‘Police will allege in court that a professional tennis player intentionally lost a match in an entry-level tennis tournament in Queensland in September 2013, while another person successfully bet on the match outcome’, read a 20 February statement from NSW Police.

Lindahl will appear in court on 12 March to answer charges that he was involved in fixing his tennis match, as will a 24-year old man charged with hindering the police investigation by providing false information. A third man will answer charges that he used ‘corrupt conduct information for betting purposes’ on 8 April. Unusual betting patterns were detected by a betting agency and reported to NSW police, which said that investigations are continuing.
