Davydenko Responds to Murrays Statements

By: Cindy Ferguson

The 26-year-old Russian professional player has made strong criticisms against statements made by Murray, a 20-year-old Scottish tennis player, affirming that "everyone knows corruption goes on" in tennis.

His disapproval of such declarations may have to deal with the fact that Davydenko is presently under investigation for his victory against Martin Vassallo Arguello. Tennis officials are looking into the stirring up of unbalanced gaming prototypes in this match.

Certainly, the Russian denies any type of illegal behavior and said Murray was foolish and silly in saying the things he said regarding the knowledge of corruption in the sport.

Rafael Nadal as well discharged the proclamations and announced that Murray has no more knowledge than anyone else and that the player had crossed the line. He also assured there are no fixed games giving especially as the world's number two he has been in most; if not all matches and that he is very aware of what goes on within the circuit just like Murray that he is smart enough to know what is going on around him.

Murray had previously informed reporters that competitions on the men's ATP Tour were being thrown and each and every player is conscious of it. To such allegations the ATP acted in response by telling players they have 48 hours to notify the governing body if they are approached to throw a match or risk punishment if they fail to do so.
