- Davydenko to be cleared of all match fixing charges and threatens to sue the ATP -

Davydenko expects to be cleared
By Sam Lyon

Nikolay Davydenko will be cleared of all match-fixing charges imminently, according to the Russian's lawyer.

Irregular betting patterns surrounding Davydenko's defeat by Martin Vassallo Arguello at last August's Sopot Open prompted the ATP to launch an inquiry.

But Frank Immenga told BBC Sport: "They should clear him any moment now."

And that may prompt retributive action from the 27-year-old, with Immenga saying: "We're certainly looking at it. The whole inquiry has been a farce."

The investigation into Davydenko's surprise defeat to Arguello last year has been the longest-running inquiry ever held into match-fixing in tennis.

Nearly $7m (£3.5m) was placed in wagers on Betfair as the Russian retired through injury while 6-2 3-6 1-2 down in the second round match in Poland.

The online betting company took the unprecedented step of voiding all bets on the match, but Immenga said: "How the inquiry has proceeded is farce.

"They have phone records dating back from August last year and have come up with nothing. I don't know what they are doing - they are obviously fishing in the dark.

"It is a very sad story because Nikolay has been badly damaged by all of this."

The Tennis Integrity Unit, set up by the ATP in response to the Davydenko case, have since punished several lower-ranked players for betting on matches.

And they are due to publish a full report into their findings on match-fixing in tennis during the French Open at the end of May.

Davydenko is seeded to face Britain's Andy Murray at the Master Series in Miami, which began on Wednesday.

Never in doubt.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

They had to do this or have absolute proof, or he would sue the ATP for millions.
He still might. You can't throw allegations like that around.
It ruins people's lives.

Re: - Davydenko to be cleared of all match fixing charges -

I'd rather wait for the official verdict of him being cleared.

If it happens, it's obvious as to why he has been cleared. It's not like the ATP have been competent in handling this investigation, but they ban people for betting ice cream money, they don't have the will to catch the major fish.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

This was ridiculous in the first place. You can't really have hard evidence on this business. It was all theoretical from the beginning. Good to see this BS end.

a totally irrelevant list of players I like, hate and want to have a beer with, all written in cute colors
