Romanian Alexandru-Daniel Carpen has been banned from playing professional tennis for life after admitting to match-fixing, the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) said on Tuesday.

Carpen, 30, admitted approaching another player in 2013 to seek his involvement in a match-fixing activity for payment.

"A TIU investigation found that in October 2013 (Carpen) made a corrupt approach to another player, seeking his involvement in match-fixing activity in return for payment," the TIU said in a statement.

Carpen has not played professionally since a 2015 ITF Futures tournament in Romania. He achieved a career-high singles world ranking of 1088 in 2007. In doubles, he peaked at 274 two years ago.
