In January the BBC and BuzzFeed reported on widespread suspected match-fixing at the top level of world tennis
Unranked Thai player Jatuporn Nalamphun has received an 18-month ban and a $5,000 (£3,490) fine after being found guilty of betting offences under the Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme.
Na lamphun, 22, admitted to committing three betting offences in 2014.
He was also found guilty of failing to co-operate with an investigation by the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), a charge he contested.
Na lamphun's fine comfortably exceeds his career earnings of $682 (£476).
He is the first player to be sanctioned by the TIU since the BBC and BuzzFeed published revelations about match-fixing in the sport.
Following the report, the Tennis Integrity Board said it would start an independent review into their anti-corruption practices.
