Spanish authorities have detained 34 people, including six tennis players, involved in a tennis match-fixing network that made more than $500,000 from lower-tier tournaments in Spain and Portugal.

The Challenger tournaments are second-tier events organized by the ATP, while the Futures are single-week competitions organized by the International Tennis Federation offering either $10,000 or $25,000 in prize money.
