Doesn't sound like a fix to me. Simply talented young player with very big serve playing in front of a supportive home audience giving it his all against established veteran for who this wasn't really a very big match. I doubt Mahut wanted to lose but on the otherhand, clearly Janowicz would have wanted to win much more.

It looked like a nasty fix. All the people who praise Janowicz will see what Stakhovsky will do to him tomorrow.
Mahut used to be one of my favourite players. Not anymore. Seriously,I lost the respect for this person.
It's great that a Polish player makes such an impressive debut, but it's so sad the circumstances are like this. So much I would prefer it happened after a true fight. Mahut didn't even pretend. Sorry to disappoint all of you who think the junior is so amazingly good.
