Alessio di Mauro (born August 9, 1977 in Syracuse) is an Italian professional tennis player. In Buenos Aires, he reached his first final of his career, where Argentine Juan Mónaco defeated him 6–1, 6–2; on February 26, 2007. Propelled by this run, the left-hander reached his career high ranking of No. 68 in the world.
On November 10, 2007, at a position of world No. 124, di Mauro was the first player to be sanctioned after being embroiled in a betting scandal. Di Mauro received a $60,000 (£29,000) fine and 9 months banning from the ATP Tour, for an offense that carried a maximum punishment of 3 years. Some officials called for a harsher punishment. However, di Mauro was not betting on the outcome of his own matches, nor did he attempt to influence the outcomes of matches. He was found to be betting from November 2, 2006 to June 12, 2007; and was caught as a result of an investigation beginning in April 2007.
