    The same thing happened to Daniel Koellerer. They haven't told us what matches he was supposed to have fixed.

    What does "match fixing" actually mean?

    Deliberately fixing a match in order to get paid money.

    Must have been the Tomic-Roddick match. Or maybe the Federer-Berdych one.

    I am sure going to miss David Savic. Not sure how the game will go on really.

    He was accused by top 30 player that Savic approached with "proposal" for fixing and accusations proved correct.
    Have seen the guy playing, feel sorry for him since there is so many fixing and it fell just to his back.....

    When you can legally gamble on everything this is the inevitable consequence.

    Jails are full of people who were just set up and are otherwise innocent

    Interesting article. The comments about Dolgopolov were quite interesting to!

    No they aren't. There are certainly some people in jail convicted of crimes they didn't actually commit but they are a small minority. Of that small minority, there is an even smaller minority of prisoners who were purposefully set up to be convicted of a crime they didn't commit. Then of that small minority, there's an even smaller one of prisoners who were purposefully set up to be convicted of a crime they didn't commit but are otherwise innocent of other crimes.
