ATP should take back all prize money from obviously tankers

The ATP should fine each player who tanked a match and take back all their prize money of the week so players will learn not to tank matches just to collect the prize money. If you want to practice for the TMC in Shanghai than stay the fuck out of Paris and give other players a chance to play.

With fines like $5000 they won't achieve anything. In other sports fines are much higher.

If it really was to save up for Shanghai they should just ban him altogether.

Re: ATP should take back all prize money from obviously tankers

Yes I have always known Djokovic is a disgrace to the tour, he is arrogant, continually plays gamesmanship and also fakes injuries, his ball bouncing tactics are used to influence players and also during different parts of the match. And as you can see today, he is making no effort to get into the match. They should ban that little prick from Shanghai all together instead.

If your ranking is good enough to qualify for a tournament and you decide to play they can do what they like.

If a player wants to tank thats there problem not your's and they are giving players a chance....a chance to go a round futher they they were expecting!

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Double Grand slam champion. Olympic Gold Medalist. Holder of 9 Masters 1000 events # legend

What a disgrace this Djoko is. He did make no effort for sure.
We are going to see his best play we've never seen in Shanghai.

The mind sees what it wants to see

If he really wanted to do that, he would've been more sensible to win today and tank against Murray

or Rafa - Volandri... would be a difficult one, as Volandri IS known for some upset this year, right?

Nah - only kidding here. Djoko was a disgrace today and should be fined.

Last two matches were very close between those two. They played 4 TB. It is not going to be big surprise if Karlovic beats Roger in two TB!

Relax Nobody is saying the opposite. TBs can go either way and although Roger has an amazing TB statistic his matches against Canas in Miami and against Djokovic in Cincinnatti have shown that Roger can lose deciding TBs.
