Match-Fixing Scandal: No. 1 in Men´s Tennis Says He Was Offered $200,000 to Lose Match


Novak Djokovic says that he felt “terrible” when he was offered money to throw a match in 2007. The world no. 1 revealed in an interview that he was asked to fix a tournament match in St. Petersburg, Russia for $200,000 in exchange.

"I was approached through people that were working with me at that time. It made me feel terrible because I don´t want to be anyhow linked to this kind of -- you know, somebody may call it an opportunity," he explained.

Djokovic said the offer was flat-out rejected. It was reported on Monday that a core group of 16 suspected tennis players, who have been ranked in the top 50, including a US Open champion, are suspected of match-fixing.
