LONDON — Austrian player Daniel Koellerer has been banned for life and fined $100,000 by tennis authorities for attempting to fix matches.

Koellerer was ranked No. 55 in 2009. He was found guilty of three violations between October 2009 and July 2010 by a group affiliated with the men's and women's tours and the International Tennis Federation.

The investigation was done by the Tennis Integrity Unit, whose findings were considered at an independent anti-corruption hearing in London on April 27-28.

A statement by the TIU on Tuesday didn't specify which matches Koellerer was found to have manipulated. Details of the hearing or decision will not be made public.
