The charges brought against Milanov encompassed a range of offences, including facilitating wagering on events, delaying or manipulating scoring data entry, attempting or conspiring to commit corruption offences and failing to cooperate fully with ITIA investigations. 

The suspension – effective from the decision date of 28 December 2023 – will persist until midnight on 27 December 2039.

Throughout the suspension period,Free games Milanov is barred from officiating or attending any tennis events authorised or sanctioned by ITIA members, which include ATP, ITF, WTA, Tennis Australia, French Tennis Federation, Wimbledon and USTA.
