    Novak Djokovic says he was offered $200,000 to lose match in 2007

    The tennis community was rocked earlier this week with a Buzzfeed and BBC report that tennis' governing bodies have been warned of widespread match-fixing taking place on the men's tennis circuit, including at Wimbledon and the French Open.

    According to the report, there is a core group of 16 players, all spending time in the world top 50, who have been connected with possible match-fixing since 2007. The most notable example, which launched the probe, came in 2008 in a match between then-No. 4 Nikolay Davydenko and Martin Vassallo Arguello.

    The accusations of match-fixing have been the talk of the tennis world as the Australian Open began this week, and world No. 1 Novak Djokovic added fuel to the fire when he told reporters that he was offered nearly $200,000 to throw a match and lose in 2007.

    THis last set is beyond epic. Most matches, in total, don’t have this many games played.

    Kevin Anderson, #B1G (Illinois). Isner should probably learn how to break serve.

    Watching the US Open, and I'm getting more annoyed than usual this year with tennis players' apparent inability to cope with the slightest bit of noise during a serve.
