Nikolay Davydenko had nothing to do with any match-fixing, tennis authorities announced today after a lengthy investigation. Davydenko, 27, had been under suspicion after abnormally high betting on a 2007 match from which he withdrew citing injury, the BBC reports. Almost $7 million was placed on Davydenko’s opponent on an online betting site—nearly 10 times the usual amount for a tennis match.
Because of the bizarre circumstances, Betfair canceled all bets on the match. But after a lengthy investigation, the Association of Tennis Professionals said it “can confirm that it found no evidence of a violation of its rules" by Martin Vassallo Arguello, Davydenko’s opponent, "or Mr. Davydenko or anyone else associated with the match.”
