Russian tennis player arrested in Paris for alleged match-fixing


The arrest relates to last year’s tournament when bookmakers issued alerts for abnormal betting patterns during [her] first-round women’s doubles match . . . .

During that encounter, hundreds of thousands of euros were reportedly wagered on a break of serve at 2-2 in set two. [She] was culpable for three of the points conceded during her service game, including two double faults as she lost her serve to love.
