    The threadtitle is misleading.. You make it sound as if Tursunov was the one person to make the offer.

    It is kind of stupid cause Dimitry already makes ton of money and has lots of money so what is offering him money going to do ?? should have offered him a hot model girl if he threw the match, he would have gone for that. and people bet on tennis all the time, it is not that difficult to win.

    Players need to be careful about their associates. Tursunov was smart to report what happened. Davydenko may not have made the same smart decisions. When the Tokhtakhounov figure skating fixing scandal arose, investigators found ties with Medvedev.

    Medvedev, Safin and Kafelnikov took flack when this photo with Tokhtakhounov surfaced:

    Haha! I love that pic, the thread with the Russian Mafia (aka bash Phil thread) was deleted. I missed that picture. Nice edit job there.

    Lol! I laughed at this. He's not exactly lighting up the tour.

    He's won several at the challenger this week.

    He's won a couple matches at random tournaments in October.

    He won a tournament in September.

    He's not a top 10 player, but he IS a top 50 player, and plays like it.

    That's true, but he is still very unpredictable which leaves one to wonder, what's going on in his head.

    That was taken from the avatar of the poster called phil, who usually insults everybody.

    I'm aware of both of these facts, but I figured someone might know where he got the pic from. I assume its not his own pic.
