Which players do you think would lose on purpose if someone payed them? I think Capriati would. I think Myskina would to.

Most of the girls playing 10k's would lose for that kind of money.
I don't think Jennifer or Anastasia would risk their reputation for that kind of money.
They're millionaires.

How much money has Myskina made this year from tournaments? $395,164. She would make more money from a loss than all her tournaments combined this year.

Myskina makes much more than just her prizemoney (which was $2 million last year).
She gets paid by Nike and Head, plus other endorsements
She gets paid for Fed Cup, Hopman Cup.
For playing Dubai, Doha, Stockholm.
Anastasia has money.

I don't care what you say, half a million is a lot of money just to lose.

But who's going to pay her? How does she know it won't become a public scandal?
She doesn't need the money. She's going to earn millions more as a tennis player.

Why would Myskina and Capriati be top suspects? Any particular reason?

Are you high????? Neither Jen nor Nastya would take $ to throw a match! Jen, in particular, has too much pride and too strong of a competitive drive to win......

she has too much pride even though she stole from stores and did drugs.

sounds like she has a lot of self-respect

Well Marta Marrero or Weingartner could lose 0-6, 0-6 and you still wouldn't know if they tanked the match or not
