    I would never have thought in a million years that tennis would take a page from the NBA.

    This isn't really new. There've been investigations for months. Davydenko (sp) has been under scrutiny for a while too.

    I saw that today, but I figured I was one of about three people who cared. It's very unfortunate. Davydenko is an excellent player, and I hate to see somebody that good throwing matches.

    Suspended and fined: Alessio di Mauro, but for betting rather than participating in a fix.

    They interviewed Davydenko's wife and another relative this week.

    Are we the only people still reading this thread?

    Yes, least until Federer or Nadal gets caught up in the gambling thing.

    I'd bet against that. :D

    Nine months? Seems light to me. Think the suspension would have been stiffer had it been someone ranked higher than 124th in the world?

    Why is any of this shit so hard to believe? Where there's money, there's corruption. Where there's lots of money, there's lots of corruption. Where there's the need to make more money, there's a need to screw things up.
