Are tennis matches rigged?

After seeing what has occured at the Australian Open and Wimbledon and to a lesser extent the French Open and other tournaments, I can't help but wondering if tennis matches are rigged. Not possible you say. Well look at it is this way, IMG owns the rights to a number of tournaments including the great Wimbledon. When it wanted a star, i.e. Maria Sharapova to be born, she made her breakthrough at Wimbledon beating two IMG represented players (no names mentioned here) in the semi-final and final.. When everyone said she was a fluke, she proceeded to beat one of the said IMG players in the final of the year end championship after said IMG represented player had the upper hand , then suddenly went south after a bathroom break. IMG is also behind the Blake circus, how much of that story is true..just ask Vince Spadea.

With IMG controlling the sport including the development, isn't it easy for a lowly ranked player to be told not to upset the apple cart particularly in major events. It's unfathomable how many of these players suddenly crumble when they meet an top ranked IMG player. Somehoew that I think Henin is scared off of IMG events notice how she crumbled to Sharapova at the US Open and to Bartoli before what t would have been a showdown and perhap win against the IMG represented winner of Wimbledon. Federer and Nadal dominate the men's tour-represented by IMG. Any talk of Nadal's drug use is quahed as soon as it comes up yet based on what I have heard there appears to be some truth to it.

Yes every match result is fake. Tennis is like the WWE

How do you think Federer became number 1

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Of course it is. How else do you explain a moonballing clown like Nadal winnings Grand Slams?

Adcourt: I've already read some of your previous threads... Hmmm, I don't tell you that all what you've written is a total bullshit although it looks you have obsessive-compulsive disorder.

I was just going to say something similar to this. Is Roddick gay, Is Blake on the juice, Did Gilbert give Nadal and Murray drugs... very interesting choice of topics to say the least.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Are tennis matches rigged?

In all seriousness Adcourt, your findings regarding match rigging and drugs in tennis are quite compelling. Overwhelming, even. You must at once contact someone at WADA and the ATP. Immediately. If you are worried about anonymity, just say your name is Alison. There is already an Alice alias, so you cannot use that.

Please report back once you have delved deeper into the subject. You will be doing the world of tennis a great service with your efforts and you may go down in the Hall of Fame should your evidence lead to any convictions.

I missed that little prize package the first time around. You are using Spadea as a source of valid information? In what parallel universe, that exists outside the guy's mind, does his word carry any weight?

Thank you for the much needed comic relief. Stop yourself here, though. Without anything concrete, this type of song and dance routine becomes a powder keg in a nanosecond.
