LONDON (AP)—Italian tennis player Claudia Coppola has been suspended for six months after being found guilty of two charges under the sport's anti-corruption program.

The Tennis Integrity Unit says the 18-year-old Coppola admitted breaking the rules against fixing the outcome of a match and soliciting a player not to give his or her best effort.

No details of the case were disclosed on Wednesday.

Coppola also was fined $4,000. The amount will be reduced to $3,000 if she completes an anti-corruption training program.

The Italian is ranked a career-high No. 869. She has career earnings of $8,301.
