Double fault: Match-fixing and online gambling (part 1)
Issued on: Modified:
After vote-buying at FIFA and doping in athletics, this week tennis has been marred in allegations of match-fixing long downplayed by organisers. An investigation published by Buzzfeed and the BBC claims this occurs even among top-level tournaments like the Australian Open. Critics also accuse regulators in the US and Europe of opening the door to an online betting business that's now out of control and has the potential to affect match results.
