It doesn't seem implausible a priori to me that a tennis player like Coria could be blackmailed into throwing a match, but just having watched the taped match, I don't think that Coria could possibly have thrown it on purpose. He served two match points, both of which were substantial rallies. On the first of them he missed the sideline by inches or he would have won the match. No one has that kind of precision. If he were throwing the match intentionally, he never would have let himself get THAT close to winning.
