Match fixing

Quote

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.

Match fixing is a very common term found in each and every game. I hat this. Some people enjoy match fixing for their personal satisfaction.

Wow! Slander much. Better be certain.

ITF Hong Kong has two retirees, each allowing a promising HK player through to the next round.

Elsewhere, the Challenger circuit is currently littered with hot favourites winning the first set then going down tamely in three, or mysteriously dropping 0-6 sets.

Looking back over this thread, it seems to be this time of year that it reaches its peak.
