Ukrainian tennis player Helen Ploskina has been handed a lifetime ban and $20,000 fine after being found guilty of match-fixing and related offences by an independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer.

A Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) investigation established that the 22-year old, currently ranked 821 in ITF World Tennis singles, introduced another player to a corruptor, who offered that individual payment in return for agreeing to fix the outcome of matches. The offences took place in October 2016.

In addition, she was found guilty of two further offences of failing to report knowledge of corrupt activity and failing to co-operate with a TIU investigation.

Andy Murray hopes to return to the singles court before the end of the year, but thinks he is unlikely to be ready in time for August's US Open.

Andy Murray's return to competitive action has been delayed until Thursday after rain washed out Tuesday's play at Queen's Club.

The 32-year-old is playing in the doubles alongside Feliciano Lopez after five months out and a hip operation.

The pair's match against Colombia's Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah was due to be played on Wednesday.

However, Kyle Edmund's match against Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of several to take its place in the order of play.

British number one Edmund had expected to get his Queen's campaign underway on Tuesday, only to be thwarted by persistent rain.

Juan Martin Del Potro will miss Wimbledon after it was announced that he needs knee surgery.

The world number 12 pulled out of the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club on Wednesday evening after an innocuous-looking slip during his first-round win over Denis Shapovalov resulted in his right knee swelling up.

Feliciano Lopez has denied any link to alleged match-fixing in 2017, before he was due to partner Britain's Andy Murray in the doubles at Queen's.

Lopez's defeat in the men's doubles alongside fellow Spaniard Marc Lopez at Wimbledon in 2017 is under scrutiny, according to Spanish media.

Nick Kyrgios accused a line judge of "rigging the game" and swore at the umpire in his first-round win at Queen's.

Kyrgios, 24, also berated himself for "playing Fifa until 3am" before beating Spain's Roberto Carballes Baena.

The world number 39 ranted at umpire Fergus Murphy after losing a set point which he thought was a double fault.

Kyrgios then lost 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 to teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime in his second match of the day.

Kyrgios was given a code violation for unsportsmanlike behaviour after his first tirade at Murphy, in which he said: "It couldn't have been further out. What are you doing?"
