Was it Dick Norman than mentioned this on his website a few days ago? Here's the first blurb about it:

Galimberti found guilty of betting on tennis, suspended for 100 days
February 18, 2008

LONDON (AP) -- Italian player Giorgio Galimberti has been found guilty of betting on tennis and has been suspended for 100 days and fined $35,000.

The ATP says Galimberti bet on tennis during a period dating from June 2003 to January 2006.

The governing body of men's tennis began its investigation in August 2007, and the findings were presented to an independent anti-corruption hearing officer.

Serves the bastard right. During the 2005 US Open, he backed himself to win against Young and Gasquet with bookies that void bets if one player retires and when he went a break down against Gasquet in the fourth set, he retired to get his money back. Disgusting.
