World No. 164 Constant Lestienne has been suspended 7 months and fined $10,000 for betting on tennis matches, according to the Tennis Integrity Unit.

The TIU reported the 24-year-old from France placed 220 online bets on tennis matches between February 2012 and June 2015, though none on himself.

Lestienne was in the Metz qualifying draw this week but in the second round he gave a walkover to Nikoloz Basilashvili.

At a Challenger event last week in Szczecin, the Frenchman became a viral sensation for this shot:
