Lindahl, 27, appeared for sentencing in Sydney's Burwood
court on Monday and was fined A$1,000 ($767), a court official
The charges related to a match Lindahl played against a junior
in a low-level Futures tournament in northeastern Queensland
Lindahl's opponent was approached by a third party before the
game but rejected the offer and reported it to a match official,
the court was told earlier.
It was alleged by the police prosecutor that Lindahl advised two
other people that he was going to "tank" the match, and by
providing that information, they were able to place bets, state
broadcaster ABC said.
A local betting agency suspended wagering on the match when it
noted an unusually high number of bets.
Lindahl, whose singles ranking peaked at 187 in 2010, and his
opponent were interviewed by the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU)
before the matter was referred to police.
The court was told Lindahl had not received any personal benefit
from the crime, ABC said.
Tennis has been reeling over match-fixing allegations since
media reports in January accused the TIU of failing to
adequately investigate 16 players repeatedly flagged over
suspicions they had thrown matches in the past decade.
The TIU denied the reports but later announced an independent
review panel would investigate the allegations and the
effectiveness of its existing procedures.
