‘Corrupt Tennis’: Around thirteen arrested in Belgium for match-fixing


As many as thirteen people has been arrested in the European country of Belgium as part of an investigation into the alleged match-fixing in the lower and middle standard tennis matches organised in the Europe.

It was the BBC news which initially exposed the corrupt practices entertained in the lower and middle standard tennis matches. The investigation pointed out that the players performing in this level were highly vulnerable compared to those belonging to the mainstream tennis matches.

The arrests have been made after the police raided several locations in Belgium where they suspected the presence of illegal match-fixing operators. At this moment, it is not clear whether all arrestees are Belgium nations or not. There is clarity in one thing that the Belgium police have requested the help of several European countries to do an extensive investigation in the issue. The move of the country indicates that the issue of the corruption in the lower and medium tennis sports sector is not confined to only one European country called Belgium, but it is actually a big issue involving the players of several other European countries.

The investigation is said to be under way. More details are awaited.
