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

I don't blame a lower ranked player for match fixing to earn some money. ITF is so stupid, their reason for not increasing the Prize Money is because they don't want to change what the ITF events are called, 10K, 25K, etc. People forget that this a source of living for them as well.

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

betting is ruining futures (and even challengers)
some players get more money for fixing his first round match rather than winning the whole tournament...so there you have the reason to do this

I think it's sad that one can earn more money by match fixing than by winning. I don't really see the solution... I mean, increasing the prize money is probably out of question. But they could perhaps change the ratio between prize money given for each round of tournament, i.e. lower the differences between different rounds.

Exactly. So tanking is not the same as fixing, just like I said.

Tennis has been busy with bans. Two guys for doping and now this problem about Match Fixing on the women's side.

They need to take money out of the later rounds of big tournaments and put more money into lower-tier tourneys. The top girls who win the Slams and stuff make most of their money from endorsements anyway, the prizemoney is not that important for them.

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

Once her ban has been lifted, Coppola gives her side of the story

http://www.tennisteitaliane.it/circu...udia-coppola-2

(Translated from Italian via Google Translate)

(...)
- Last September, while you were in Egypt to compete in the ITF tournament in Sharm El Sheikh $ 10,000 , you have been disqualified from the Tennis Integrity Unit for six months following an alleged attempt to combine . Much has been written and talked about so much of this episode , or rather misunderstanding , which in spite of yourself you were the protagonist, without really knowing what had happened. Now that you've lowered the disqualification can you tell us your version of events ?

(C): Yes, of course . Now that I've served my disqualification want to talk. Why are the subject of a ( scam sports ) by the tournament director , supervisor and a player who then reported me . The day before the board I was training with Giulia Bruzzone on Field 1 . We were training while I had a tear in the abdominal muscles . I continued to train and when we tried the beats , I realized that I could not even beat. Ten minutes later I went to the supervisor and asked to retire from the outset that I had a toilet for the main draw , so I would have no reason to retire if I was not really injured . The supervisor insisted not to pick me and I did not understand why , telling me that I had to wait for the next day, then I asked him to let me visit by the physiotherapist . The supervisor told me that he was not there. But I had seen him sitting in a chair intent on watching the last games of the day on the field 3:04 . So after I asked again, the supervisor told me that was not possible and I had to return the next day. ( I still did not understand the reason for this wanting to delay my retirement )

. The next day as I was going to retire on the fields , I saw that the supervisor and the player who reported me in very confidential relationships , then I began to understand , because the same player was to be my opponent . Now you know what I mean? What if I had not withdrawn my opponent would have been much easier to win because I could not move. After all this I asked the supervisor to retire and he was always trying to avoid my retirement . That's when I called my father and asked him what to do, who told me to force the supervisor to call the physiotherapist. After he spoke with the supervisor in Arabic he also tried to not let me pick up and I wanted to give medicines without a name and without knowing what they gave me. Then my father intervened and forced them to make me the "medical ."

The evening before my actual withdrawal met my hypothetical opponent , that was my doubles partner the week before, and jokingly told him that if I had not withdrawn her I would have just let it win, because in those conditions I would never could play a game and for this reason she has denounced . Now you understand why my disqualification ? Why am I retired and gave the opportunity for another player to be able to play without leaving some miosto win an easy victory .

She also says her favourite tournaments are the Grand Slams...and she hopes to win as many as possible
