A Wimbledon match is under investigation

Tennis investigators are examining whether a match at this
year's Wimbledon was fixed after suspicious betting patterns
were reported.

The Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), which was set up in 2008 to
detect any corruption, has not revealed which match it is

The TIU is already investigating a US Open first-round match
between Vitalia Diatchenko and Timea Bacsinszky.
"Both are the subject of routine, confidential investigation," it

The TIU said it received 96 alerts from July to September,
including the two alerts from Wimbledon and the US Open.
Alerts come from regulators and betting organisations, who
can report matches if they notice suspicious betting patterns.

"It is important to appreciate that an alert on its own is not
evidence of match-fixing," added the TIU.

It states that unusual gambling patterns can be explained by
factors other than fixing, such as incorrect odds setting, player
fitness, playing conditions and well-informed betting.
