Tennis has ever been the biggest money rolling sport after soccer where players make millions of dollars with a good performance in any big tourney and when players earning is so high than how bettors can be left behind and they are also the biggest roller out of the game. When so much money is involved in a game, it becomes necessary to regulate it else it would lose its charm of being the honest game and Tennis obviously is one such game. Whenever there is a reasonable complaint against any Tennis game within US, the Tennis Integrity Unit acts promptly and tries to find out what went wrong in the mentioned game to act accordingly and 2016 US Open’s first-round women’s singles match between Russia’s Vitalia Diatchenko and Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland was one such game for which anti-corruption organization has enough complaints doubting its authenticity hence they have promised to examine it thoroughly after receiving a grievance from the betting organization about unfair betting placed during the game.
Although, the game was won by Bacsinszky 6-1 6-1, who is seeded 15th in the tournament, against world No.87 Diatchenko, but many have strong doubts over the fast changing odds during the game as if there was some confirmed reports about the result of the game. Informing about their course of action plan, TIU spokesman said: “We will assess, make a judgement and take appropriate action on the alert information received and obtained for the first-round singles match.
“It is important to appreciate that an alert on its own is not evidence of match-fixing.
“There are many reasons, other than corrupt activity, that can explain unusual betting patterns, such as incorrect odds-setting, well-informed betting, player fitness, fatigue and form, playing conditions and personal circumstances.”
