Assignment reveals secret evidence of match fixing in tennis and how world authorities have failed to act on repeated warnings about a group of suspect players.
The programme has seen confidential documents which reveal how players – some ranked in the top 50 – have been linked to gambling syndicates in Russia and Italy. At least fourteen high-ranking players, who have been repeatedly flagged on fixing lists passed to the game’s Tennis Integrity Unit, have continued to attract highly suspicious gambling activity.
Reporter Simon Cox has an exclusive interview with one of the most high profile players to be banned for match fixing, who says the problem is widespread in the sport.
