Wimbledon Gambling

As the 2008 Wimbledon tennis tournament begins, authorities are looking into claims that gamblers fixed eight of last year’s matches. The growing tennis fixing scandal, which made news headlines late last year, has focused mostly on the Russian mafia paying off lower-ranked players to throw matches, so Scotland Yard is stepping in this year to try and combat fixing. So there’s more to Wimbledon than just white tennis shorts!
