The term 'mug' is used too often on MTF.

However, Canas is a mug. A proper one.

Wow, Cañas can't beat anyone these days :scared: to think he was one of the most successful players 2 years ago, beating the #1 twice.

Croatian guys, how good is Veic? Gameplay, groundstrokes etc.?

Shame on you, Willy.

how come he's playing indoor rather than in Vina?

This match was fixed. Odds at betfair proved that. 4.00 for Canas when he was 6:4 up and had a break-point in second set. Another big fix.

Things aren't looking good for the older generation of Argentine players. All past 30 y.o. and struggling big time at the moment.

I watched him on a challenger last year, and he's not a typical Croat, not a very good serve, he loves long rallies, and doesn't go to the net often, his groundstrokes are nothing special, but solid for a player with that rank.

Match really seemed to be fixed.

All bookies canceled their Live-bets on the match after the 1st Set.
And as written before I can affirm, that the odds for Veic were 1.25 when he was 4-6 0-1 down!

unless he loses a leg, an injury never turns a player leading one set and one break into a 4.0 underdog

If that picture was taken today it does suggest an injury. It is also fairly logical that Canas would be injured, he is phyically finished.

However, Canas being heavy underdog when leading a set and a break point in live odds is of course suspect.

Obvious fix. The betting pattern says it all. I don´t know how these guys think they´re going to get away with it.

Well, I watched Canas live approx 7 months ago and he sucked like hell, so now when he is 7 months older I believe he must suck like a double hell.

Pour Cañas. I don´t like his game, but for some reasons I like him and it´s very bad so seeing him loosing like that since...since a long time ago.

If I were fixing, I'd also make-believe by taking an injury time-out.

Not saying that he's fixing, but still.

The players are not familiar with the mechanisms of Betfair so they think nobody will notice as long as they play their part well on the court. Major mistake.

donkey got away with it.
so they think they can do it as well.
atp is gutless.
they will only suspend you if
you open up an offshore sportsbook account under your own name.
otherwise you can do whatever the fuck you want
and get away with it.

So is Veic according to his interview,says he entered the match intent not to be throughly beaten or humiliated. If there was any fixing, I doubt he had anything to do with it. He's an OK guy on his way up.

Canas is way past his best, he should do everyone a favour and retire

*snowflake*
02-03-2009, 09:36 PM
If only it was the first time he was up one set and a break in second and lost. I'm still haunted by a Montreal '07 match with PHM when he was up 4-1 in the secong set, lost the set 7-5 and third 6-0 :smash:

Canas had some shoulder problems, but losing to Veic indoors is the loss of the year so far, the guy is a futures moonballer, i think girls like Catalina Castano or MArtina Muller have a better serve then Veic, pathetic has got a new definiton- Guillermo Canas

SwiSha
02-04-2009, 02:04 PM
stop talking about this as this was a normal match

Canas just fell from one of the biggest fighters in the game to a lowlife and joins Davydenko,Volandri,Hernandez, Polaco and many others

Did the bookies void it? (I can't see gambling websites where I am :rolleyes:) If the bookies don't pay, does willy still get his $?

TMJordan
02-04-2009, 02:09 PM
They didn't void it...Canas would still get paid either way.

SwiSha
02-04-2009, 02:10 PM
i dont think that betfaír or others bookies voided it, it was small a time fix

i am looking forward seeing Canas on the circuit to tell him what he is

Snoo Foo
02-04-2009, 02:15 PM
"ATP has not started an investigation since it does not believe the match was rigged." pffft... I wonder how much was on Veic, this article (http://www.croatiantimes.com/index.php?id=2620) says "millions" AUD.

SwiSha
02-04-2009, 02:17 PM
ATP aint gonna do shit, Davydenkos match was as big as it gets and they couldnt or lets say they actually didnt want to truly investigate and make it a big scandal

why should do look into these small fixes then

Willy is struggling for quite some time already. Problems with confidence and now also an injury.
He pulled out of the doubles too so please shut the fuck up about fixing :retard:

How does pulling out of doubles make it not fixed? Wake up, if you know what betting odds are, just look at them, the whole story is right there.
