A Swedish newspaper, SvD SPORT, published a list of 41 ATP and WTA players, stating that this is a blck list of players, who are suspected in match fixing, meaning that they have intentionally lost their matches to particular players, and people who knew about that, bet on their defeat.

So, that it a list of players, whose matches are tracked by Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU),Betfair and ATP.

Before posting the list, I would like to clarify that this is just an article which I found in a Swedish newspaper. There is no official confirmation from Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), ATP or WTA. So, no-one knows whether the list is fake or not.
