Re: Cañas is suspected by the settlement of matchs.

This was discussed extensively already.

google-translation:

Under Willy sospechaEl party that lost in the first round of the ATP Zagreb alert sparked a betting house, then the Unit for the Tennis Integrity for a possible settlement, according to an English newspaper. The Argentine won 6-4 and 2-1 before the Spanish Veic, 225 of the world, but ended up losing.

He laments. Canas lost to the Spanish youth who had not won a match or ATP. (AP)

The actions of Guillermo Cañas in the open that Zagreb is still disputing, aroused suspicions of a possible settlement of games. The Argentine tennis player Guillermo Cañas lost this first round on Monday before the Spanish Antonio Veic, 255 of the world, after being up 6-4 and 2-1, today released the English newspaper The Guardian.

The British bookmaker Betfair house came to momentarily suspend the payment of bets of the party, which had an abrupt change when Cañas, wide favorite, winning 6-4, 2-1 before Veic. Finally, the former world number 8, ended up losing 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 before a rival of 20 years, who until that day had not a single win on the ATP Tour.

Experts of the Unit for the Tennis Integrity (TIU), established by the ATP after that several parties were under suspicion in recent years, called on Betfair to suspend the payment of bets.

"We are aware of speculation concerning the evolution of the bets of the party. Please note that this bet will remain suspended pending an internal investigation," said a communique from the party after Betfair.

Twenty-six hours later, announced that Betfair had no irregularities in the evolution of the gambling game, but, according to The Guardian, now that the TIU will be taking a position on the issue.

Jeff Rees, head of TIU, "faces a difficult decision," said The Guardian. "TIU does not comment on any investigation that may or may not be ongoing," simply respond to The Guardian a spokesman for the investigative unit.
So apparently betfair found no irregularities after a 26-hour investigation. But the Tennis Integrity Unit is still studying the case.

In this case I do not think that is true, Willy is playing very badly and can lose with either.

Innocent until proven guilty. The CAS (tribunal for sport) in Switzerland actually greatly reduced the legal severity for the "doping" positive because of the circumstances (he was given a medication containing a banned ingredient by an ATP trainer). However most media and especially gamblers only think black and white on these matters.

From what I remember his story about the trainer had quite a few holes in it, but anyway what has gambling got to do with how one perceives a doping case?

Maybe just that a large percentage of gamblers (but not all gamblers) have outspoken opinions that often not based on deeper knowledge specific cases. I mean try reading a betting forum around the time of a doping positive or a suspected fixing case. I don't think the accusation of Canas being "a doper" has ever been absent from any betting discussion involving him in recent years. Also in the aftermath of matches suspected for match-fixing most live match discussion threads will be dominated by allegations of fixing especially if the favourite loses, often for months.

it's no surprise to me (unfortunately) that he could lose to this dude but the more troubling aspect is the irregular betting patterns. Millions of dollars (if it's true) on a boy who's never won an atp match when he was already down a set and a break? In 1R of Zagreb? I admit I don't know much about these things but that sounds pretty weird.

Hope is not true. And lately, Cañas is playing really bad.

Even if Canas did lose on purpose it's impossible to know if he was actually getting paid to do so or if he innocently told a friend that his shoulder was a bit stiff and he was going to tank in the first round to get a rest before he heads to North America.
