Top 30 Players involved in betting – ATP Cup 2020
ATP Cup 2020 will be scheduled between 3 to 12 January this year and the venue of the tournament is three Australian cities – Brisbane, Perth, Sydney.
More than 135 Tennis players, including one ranked in the ATP top 30, are implicated in an international betting scandal, German media reported on Sunday.
According to a joint report by daily news paper Die Welt and broadcasters ZDF, the players are subject to a cross border investigation involving both the FBI and European authorities.
Among the individuals allegedly involved is a male player in the top 30 who has won 3 ATP tour titles, the reports said. ” We are talking about an Armenian betting mafia network which is spread across seven countries in Europe and has manipulated on a large scale,” Belgian state prosecutor Eric Bisschop told ZDF.
He added the scandal involved hundreds of small bets on fixed games, wracking up profits of thousands of euros in each case.
ZDF and Die Welt also spoke to Argentinian former player Marco Trungelliti, a whistleblower who claims to have been contacted by match fixers.
” There are pros in the world top 50 who have fixed games. It happens at all levels, ” Trungelliti said. “
