Tennis player Mathieu Montcourt dead

French tennis player Mathieu Montcourt, ranked 119th in the world, was found dead by his girlfriend in Paris. Montcourt had been suspended for betting on other tennis matches and fined $12k; that suspension took effect on Monday. He had bet a whopping $192 on 36 tennis events.

Reports are that he died of natural causes, which would be one of the most bizarre coincidences I've heard in a long time.
