Tennis: Jaziri cleared by ATP for pulling out to avoid Sela

The ATP announced on Tuesday that Tunisian tennis player Malek Jaziri did not pull out of his first round match in Montpelier, France, last week in order to avoid a meeting with Israeli Dudi Sela.

Jaziri, who’s ranked No. 71 in the world, retired from his match against Denis Istomin in suspicious circumstances last Wednesday after winning the first set 6-3.

In 2013, Jaziri withdrew from the Tashkent Challenger tournament before his match against Israel’s Amir Weintraub.
