Wimbledon fix probe
THREE matches at this month’s Wimbledon will be investigated for possible match- fixing, the Tennis Integrity Unit has announced.
Alerts were triggered on two matches at the qualifying event at Roehampton and one from the main draw after some unusual betting patterns. The matches will now be reviewed by the TIU in keeping with their match alert policy, along with one from last month’s French Open, although they stress an alert is not evidence of match- fixing.
The TIU has received four of 53 alerts since April, with three coming on the men’s ATP Tour and one on the women’s WTA Tour.
The rest came on the lower level Challenger, Futures and ITF Women’s circuits.
