That's just stupid
You can always agree to it before the match And it's ITF, the coach is sitting like 3 meters away.

Not like it's hard to talk before the match. Tell your buddy, When I get 3 match points at 5-2 40-Love in Set 2. Bet 100 bucks against me. With smartphones its pretty easy to make a bet from any where.

Don't sports books communicate through back channels to an official responsible for anti-corruption in each of the leagues. When we're talking a 10k, a $100 bet paid out over 10:1 would probably flag whatever software the bookie is running to look for suspicious activity. I mean how much money is bet at at obscure events like this. If a bet that was big relative to the market was made, it would be flagged for sure.

If a credit card company automatically calls me if I buy gasoline out of town then its not hard to imagine that the software for flagging suspicious bets exists.

"Journeywoman wannabe"

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

No doubt. Any anomalies in betting pattern are reported immediately. Proving someone's guilt is the hard part.

WTA, these weird scores where a player is dominant in one set then bagged in the next, is fairly common. I don't know that you could go by the scores. Even fairly dramatic upsets are not that uncommon.

Seriously, does matt cronin just monitor the forums and that's how he picks his articles. There's no way he would find out about this unless he saw the thread.

"The Tennis Integrity Unit says the 18-year-old Coppola admitted breaking the rules against fixing the outcome of a match and soliciting a player not to give his or her best effort."

Which suggests racketeering.

Tanking doesn't have to mean losing on purpose. You can be putting in low effort, but still trying to win, so not just purposely hitting the ball out.

Besides while in theory tanking to lose on purpose is fixing the outcome of the match, it's not really what people mean when they are talking about match fixing. Match fixing in these terms is arranging the outcome of a match to profit elsewhere. For example when a football team plays their reserve team to save their team for a more important game, no-one is calling them out for match fixing.

I think the term 'Journeywoman' is too flattering for someone ranked #850.

It would be way more than this amount that sets flags off. $100 @ 10/1 is nothing in the scheme of things, you'd get randomers just betting that. But the principle is right, it's the volume of bets too. One stand alone bet wouldn't really set any flags off. It's when their taking lots of people swarming all over one side, which will really stand out.

The problem why nothing often happens is because a suspicious betting pattern isn't proof in legal terms of match fixing. I can see a football (soccer) match where 10 million goes on the draw @ 1.5, doesn't take a lot to work out that something is up, but unfortunately that in itself isn't proof in court that it was fixed. It takes large scale, expensive investigations which probably just isn't seen as viable, especially when you are talking 10k ITF's.

Let me get this right from an english language standpoint. The point here is that she asked another player to underperform and that player then ratted her out. So it could be something "harmless" like moving up for an entry list with another win. Nobody can be that stupid to involve the opponent in the match-fixing. You would just bet on something you can control with your own negative play. Any way you look at it the girl was pretty naive. Well she is only 18. She should have denied everything.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
