This report on murky happenings within the Futures circuit makes for an interesting read. And, for anyone who loves this sport, it’s also a very unpleasant read. You would like to think that these incidents remain extremely isolated - but can we say for sure that this is the case chin

One of the things that strikes me when looking for streaming sites to follow tennis is the number of matches being broadcast live at Challenger or even Futures level (sometimes such matches are being broadcast even during a slam).  Whilst I appreciate some may have niche tastes (and there may be genuine interest in wanting to follow the fortunes of a young up-and-coming player e.g. Jack Draper) it does look a bit dubious that there is a significant demand to follow tennis matches at this level, together with opportunities to bet on them.  This, combined with the modest level of prize money available at that level, leads me to the conclusion that there's a lot of temptations for match-fixing at that level.

The larger context of the local environment being a factor is an important parameter. If the society-at-large within some of the referenced countries has some corruption, it becomes a vehicle for survival within the smaller context of (any) sport in that country.

The article clearly shows that it is a slow slide into corruption (and his father clearly warns him). This is the dark side of Sports Betting.
