BOMBSHELL: Journeywoman Wannabe Claudia Coppola banned for 6-months

Journeywoman wannabe Claudia Coppola, 19 y.o. Ranked around #850, has been banned for six months for match fixing. She has to pay 4000 dollars, Which can be reduced to 3000 if she takes part to some anti-corruption program.

Can't say she does not deserve it, but I have seen some bigger fixers ranked pretty high and they go to ban a player who would have even hardly entered TheBoiledEgg's coloured ranking?

I think it's pretty obvious that match fixing is very common on the tour. I mean, if you check bet365, it has matches live between two completely unknown players in 10k qualies in the middle of nowhere. I have to admit that if I were on tour, I'd definitely fix a match or two to afford to go to tournaments and continue with my career (unless I had a sponsor). When the fave in the match goes up like a set and 3-2 the odd can be over 10 on that player losing the match, which shouldn't be too hard and a 1000$ bet could guarantee playing tourneys for like 2-3 months.

Is it bad that I thought the same thing?

It is not out yet the specific match/matches she fixed, but the few wins she had in her career were matches where she was somehow a favourite, so where did it happen? Double maybe?

You can bet on everything these days, like losing the 3rd point in game 4 of set 2

As long as the bookmakers generate enough volume from streaming tennis matches they´ll accept the occasional fixing. They´ll just ban the successful/suspicious bettors. That´s a more effective way to keep the operations afloat than trying to prove that somebody fixed a match. If you had bet $1000 plus pre-match on a certain match in Seoul this week that´s the last bet you ever made with that bookmaker/account.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Looking at her results I don't really see anything that sticks out

I guess that's true but that seems like it would be very hard to prove if she was doing something mid match. Where would she be able to communicate with people? Sending them secret signals then?

That's just stupid

Well a 0-6 7-6 6-0 win could be an honest win and a 6-4 4-6 6-4 could be a fix. You can't tell by the score.

It is. It's deliberately throwing the match. Just tanking suggests you don't have a benefit in the outcome which you would in fixing.

I was looking for a score where she won the first set and then lost the next two sets

Typically you make more money if you're going to fix a match if you're betting live and are leading by a lot and then all of the sudden lose the match. Just like a poster has said previously.

An odd could be as high as 10 and someone betting $100-$1000 on a match could make quite a lot of money. Definitely more than she would get by winning a match in a 10K.

Shame she got banned where it most definitely happens in the higher levels of professional tennis yet nothing is done about it.
