Tennis betting: "High-ranking players were not punished"

In 2007 five Italian professional tennis players were banned from the game for betting on matches.

ATP rules prevent players from any form of gambling.

One of the players was Federico Luzzi - he died a few months later from a rare form of cancer.

His mother Paola Cesaroni says 95 other international tennis players were also involved and she cannot understand why the ATP did not punish them as well.
