London - Romanian tennis player Marius Frosa has been suspended for eight months and fined $1 000 for placing 12 bets on the sport, the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) announced on Sunday.

The 21-year-old was not involved in any of the matches that he placed bets on.

"A TIU investigation found that the player held three online betting accounts, through which 12 bets were placed on tennis between July 2014 and June 2015," the TIU said in a statement.

Frosa, the current world number 2 010, has never played at ATP Tour level and has only ever won one match on the second-tier Challenger circuit.
