Tennis betting panel to review 45 matches

Tennis betting panel to review 45 matches

: "An independent panel concluded Monday that 45 professional tennis matches from the past five years require further review because of suspicious betting patterns.

The International Tennis Federation, the ATP, the WTA Tour and the four Grand Slams published the findings of the panel in a 66-page report.

The review said that 'professional tennis is neither systematically nor institutionally corrupt.'

The review said it had examined 73 matches over the past five years, and 45 remain under suspicion 'from a betting perspective.' It didn't say which matches were still under suspicion."
