Questions raised over potential Wimbledon match fixing activity


Tennis specialists are looking at whether a match at Wimbledon this year was altered. The London-based Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) got a caution with respect to one match played at the titles, it has declared.

Its cautions originate from controllers and wagering associations, who can report matches on the off chance that they see suspicious wagering patterns.The TIU said it got 96 alarms from July to September, of which two came in stupendous pummels, the first at Wimbledon and the second at the US Open. Wimbledon kept running from 27 June to 10 July.

A TIU explanation said: “Verifiably, stupendous pummels get not very many match alarms and with regards to that record, just two were gotten amid the period; one at Wimbledon, the other at the US Open. Both are the subject of normal, private examination by the TIU.”

The US Open match under scrutiny had as of now been revealed, with the TIU having declared in September it was taking a gander at the match between Vitalia Diatchenko and Timea Bacsinszky. It has not given points of interest of the Wimbledon coordinate that is under investigation. The TIU’s direction states: “value that an alarm all alone is not proof of match-settling.”

It expresses that bizarre betting examples can be clarified by variables other than settling, for example, erroneous chances setting, player wellness, playing conditions and very much educated wagering.
