Wim­ble­don fix probe

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

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.
