Wimbledon came under microscope for possible match-fixing

Vastavam web: Wimbledon came under the microscope today with three matches at this year’s tournament set to be investigated for possible match-fixing, according to the Tennis Integrity Unit. Two qualifying matches at Roehampton and one from the main Wimbledon draw triggered some bizarre betting patterns and are to be examined further, said the anti-corruption body that polices professional tennis.The TIU’s match alert policy means that the unit checks on irregularities such as strange betting tendencies, but it insisted the alerts are not evidence of match-fixing.One match from June’s French Open will also be looked at just four of 53 alerts received by the TIU since April, although the majority came from matches at the lower level Challenger, Futures and ITF Women’s tours.
