41 Players in Black List over Potential Match Fixing

Match fixing in Tennis

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.

In my opinion, judging the way the article is written, and since it cites John Nilsson, a trader at Betfair, I believe that in case the list really exists, it was made by Betfair, which probably passed it to Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), ATP and WTA, but the reaction of the latter bodies, and the measures taken by them are not disclosed.

So, what I think is that this is not an official black list made by Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), which specializes on match fixing investigations.

And the last, but not least, no-one ever managed to prove that any player from that list was involved in match fixing.

I would like to highlight it again that there is no evidence of the intentional match fixing by any of these players
