Tennis authorities ‘absolutely reject’ covering up match fixing claims

The tennis integrity unit (TIU) – meant to keep the sport corruption free has said it had a zero tolerance approach to match fixing claims.

The 2016 Australian Open was pitched into a match fixing scandal today as some documents set to be revealed by the BBC on Tuesday claimed that lots of players who have ranked in the Top 50 have been repeatedly flagged to the TIU over suspicions of match fixing in the past decade.

Eight of these players are due to play in the Australian Open which kicked off earlier today, reports suggested.

Various tennis governing bodies have since refuted claims at a press conference today stating that all reported cases were treated, with investigations on-going for others.

 

More revelations expected on this report in coming days.
