LONDON (AP) Tennis player Feliciano Lopez has denied any wrongdoing after being linked by Spanish media to a doubles match at Wimbledon in 2017 that was allegedly fixed.

Lopez said on Wednesday at the Queen's Club tournament in London that "I feel it is extremely important to come to you and absolutely deny any link with the events described in relations to the allegations of match fixing."

Spanish online newspaper El Confidencial reported earlier this week that a match played by Feliciano Lopez and doubles partner Marc Lopez at Wimbledon two years ago had been mentioned in a phone conversation by a former soccer player who is being investigated as part of a match-fixing probe in Spanish soccer.
