Favourite "alleged" fixer?

Yes, there have been some suspect matches, but not as many as some of the more paranoid would like to make out.

No player has actually been suspended for fixing matches, hence the title has alleged.

Can be either which player you don't actually mind or like in general, but been involved in some "funny" matches. Or the most blatant fix.

Sargisan and Davydenko from Wimbledon was high quality. Davy won the first set 6-0 and then retires.

Pashanski and Tursunov from St.Petersburg, haha.

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".

Re: Favourite "alleged" fixer?

Plenty of info about the matches in this thread.

http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...ghlight=tanked

Koellerer and Hernandez in Rosmalen this year was pretty funny and obvious, though not as blatant as some.

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".

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Favourite "alleged" fixer?

Why is it a infractionable offense to virtually acuse athletes of doping on this forum, but to borderline acuse of match fixing is not?

IMO match fixing is a far worse offense than doping.

Re: Favourite "alleged" fixer?

I remember Kohli was allegedly involved in a fix in one of these Russian events in 2007, so it would have to be him.

We need one of these for "alleged" dopers too.

I reckon, but such a thread would not last 5 minutes unless it were started by the establishment.

Match fixing is far, far worse. Doping is only really gamesmanship, and its actual benifit if any to a generic sport like tennis is questionable. Match fixing brings the game into disrepute, is done soley for money and is likely to involve organised crime rings.

Naive at best, so doping isn't cheating, you live in Nimbin. No, there is no benefit from more red blood cells to help with endurance, there is no help in using something illegal that aids for faster muscle recovery and to gain more strength with a shorter period of time.

Considering MVA and Davydenko were investigated for suspect betting patterns, not that they were found guilty. When players are favourites and clear favourite on markets when they are down a set and a break.

Hernandez and Koellerer were going to be investigated.

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".

Re: Favourite "alleged" fixer?

Hehe, another one of those Davy-Kunitsyn "interesting turnarounds" today. For once probably genuine though, snce they went to triple matchpoint, far too risky.


As for doping: the benefits are obvious, and frankly tennis drugtesting is a joke. Top guys are tested once a year on average for EPO, and they can easily skip the test. Might as well not bother testing at all.

Fixing is far worse than drug enhancement, indeed.
