Match-fixing in tennis

The world of tennis continues to be rocked by allegations of widespread match-fixing - including at Wimbledon - with reports that 16 top 50 players have been flagged to the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) over the years - but allowed to continue competing. A cache of documents leaked to the BBC and Buzzfeed News reportedly showed a series of highly suspicious bets had been placed on games - though the ATP has insisted unusual betting patterns were not proof of misconduct. The timing of the scandal was particularly awkward for the world of tennis, coming as the Australian Open began its early stages.
