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.
