Re: BOMBSHELL: Journeywoman Wannabe Claudia Coppola banned for 6-months
"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.
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.
