I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

In Oberstaufen, Berrer takes the 1st set 6-0 v Eysseric and Kovalik does the same v Pospisil. Jaroslav won one point on serve. That makes 43 6-0 sets since Monday 14th July in ATP/Challenger events.

You mean the 6-0 sets? 6-0 is the only score you can practically guarantee in tennis and many betting companies now offer odds that there'll be a 6-0 set in any given match.
I see.  Thanks.  I assume that the reason the culprits match-fix so blatantly is because they know they'll get away with it since the tennis authorities are unwilling to take action to put a stop to this activity?

I've written to the ITF about it and got no response. It's almost as bad a conspiracy as Harman.

Why do the ITF keep burying their heads in the sand?  This does the image and reputation of tennis no good whatsoever.

They don't want to cause a stink. It also solves the problem of only the top 50 making decent money. If the journeymen can supplement their income this way, it absolves the ITF of any financial responsibility.
