Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez has denied any involvement in match-fixing after his name was mentioned in a media report concerning a doubles match with fellow Spaniard Marc Lopez which took place at Wimbledon in 2017.

After stories mentioning my name and my partner Marc Lopez, I feel it is very important to deny any link with events related to the fixing of matches, Lopez told a news conference at the Queens Club Championships on Wednesday.

He said he and Marc Lopez had made contact with the Tennis Integrity Unit about the match cited in media reports, a second round defeat by Matt Reid and John Patrick Smith, and was told the match was not under investigation.
