TYT Talks Match-Fixing Tennis Scandal [VIDEO]

News media exposed secret files containing evidence of widespread match-fixing by players at the upper level of world tennis.
A sum of 16 players, all of whom have ranked in the top 50, have been repeatedly flagged to the world tennis authorities over suspicions that they have thrown matches at tournaments including Wimbledon, allowing corrupt gamblers to cash in by betting against them.
None of those players have ever faced sanctions.
More than half of them are playing at the Australian Open, which started on Monday.
Andy Murray, the world No. 2, called for greater transparency in sport, and said that more should be done to educate young players about the dangers of corruption in tennis.
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic said he had been indirectly offered $200,000 to throw a match in 2007.
