In Paris, the tennis elite fights at theFrench Open is currently about to advance to the second round. But high-quality competition could take a downer now. As the “Welt” reports, a women’s doubles from September 30 is suspected of manipulation.
The focus is therefore on the match between the Romanians Andreea Mitu and Patricia Maria Tig and the duo of the American Madison Brengle and the Russian Yana Sizikova. It’s about the second sentence. Two double faults of the Russian Sizikova had already caught the attention of viewers.
Several sources have told me that many bookmakers have issued warnings for abnormal bets in the Sizikova / Brengle match at Roland Garros, Set 2 Game 5, Sizikova on service to be broken. She was broken to love. This is the video of the game (thanks to @UnArdeal for finding the video). pic.twitter.com/OPSO6hBjJj
