I know you dont like to hear it but olek has been @ 6 with a set up
he was @ 1.45 at the start of the match, this is fixed obviously

he was never going to win it

Re: Olek Dolgopolov Jr.

Odds now @ 8 for Olek, being 1-0 up in the first set. I guess he is not winning then...

Re: Olek Dolgopolov Jr.

surprising that olek throws his career away like this

or maybe not his career but at least his honesty

Re: Olek Dolgopolov Jr.

And I still don't get why such a talented guy like Dolgo has to fix? Why win all these challengers and climb the rankings, if you throw away matches at ATP-level. For the money? He has plenty I guess...

who knows? we can only speculate why he does it but the fact that he does it is enough for me to quit supporting him

Re: Olek Dolgopolov Jr.

That was an unfortunate situation. Even with little experience with knowledge of fixing, I could tell pretty quick it was a fix. Why is he doing it? Probably because he's a scared and ignorant kid from a place where fixing is prevalent, because he has no money, and probably because he thinks this is the best way for him to make a living. If he would actually win matches on the ATP tour he could get money easier and more honestly, but I'm guessing he doesn't believe in himself either.

Really, Dolgo just has a lot of growing up and maturing to do, which is why I'll still support him, because I'm assuming he'll grow out of this and do better down the line. But he's CLEARLY let it be known he is not ready for the ATP tour right now.

Re: Olek Dolgopolov Jr.

These big guys are not joking with the tennis players. We give the players bad labels but I don't think it's their choice at all - at least in most cases.

Re: Olek Dolgopolov Jr.

So, Dolgo is scheduled to play in Madrid tomorrow for qualifying, we'll see if he is healthy or not, would be interesting if he recovers from his "serious" injury in about 3-4 days.

The qualifying list is weak so he should qualify, if he is healthy enough to play at 100% or close to it.

Re: Olek Dolgopolov Jr.

Here is Olek's section of the draw at Madrid qualifying:

(4) DOLGOPOLOV JR., Oleksandr UKR v (WC) MENENDEZ-MACEIRAS, Adrian ESP
(WC) GOMEZ-HERRERA, Carlos ESP v (8) FISH, Mardy USA

Obviously he should win this section, but after what happened in Munich and his possible injury situation and obvious lack of confidence, I'm not certain he will make it through here. He must do so really, however, no excuses if he doesn't. Hopefully he gets the job done. Good luck to him.
