ATP superstar Roger Federer has been named in an October 13 lawsuit involving illegal gambling activity by IMG owner Theodore Forstmann.
Website TMZ reported today that a lawsuit was filed L.A. County Superior Court naming IMG owner Theodore Forstmann. The suit was brought by Agate Printing, who claimed that it served as a gambling go-between for Forstmann, who allegedly made millions off the transactions.
Also named in the lawsuit is Roger Federer, who was accused of giving Forstmann inside information about at least one match in which the Swiss man participated. Forstmann allegedly raised a bet from $10,000 to $40,000 on one of Federer’s tips. The match in question is thought to be the 2006 French Open final, which he lost to Rafael Nadal.
TMZ also reports that a similar suit against Forstmann was brought in 2008, but was dismissed. The Federer camp was not available for comment.
