Wimbledon Matches May Have Been Fixed

The Tennis Integrity Unit, an independent body that investigates corruption in the game, has expressed suspicions over three matches at Wimbledon based on unusual betting patterns.  

The watchdog group did not specifically make mention of the matches in question.

Last year a BuzzFeed News and BBC investigation revealed evidence that the sport’s authorities had turned a blind eye to widespread match-fixing. Since then, the integrity unit has more than doubled its personnel. Tennis is also undergoing an independent review into "integrity in the sport."

The news about Wimbledon was released in the integrity unit’s quarterly briefing report, which mentioned a total of 53 matches, including one at the French Open. The report cautions that “an alert on its own is not evidence of match-fixing,” but may prompt further inquiry.

The number of alerts received by the Integrity Unit is down significantly from last year, though still at 83 compared to the 121 that came in during the first half of 2016.
