dodgy match alert!!
Host a really weak tournament on the tennis circuit's least-favoured surface the week before a Grand Slam, have players enter who have never won match on grass and what do you get? Oscar Hernandez is a decent claycourter rarely able to win on any other surface, Daniel Koellerer is a headcase who swears at his opponents, the umpire, line judges, spectators. Something is up here.
This market movement has all happened in the past couple of hours. These two have a history - take a look at this clip and see how 'friendly' they are to each other!
The ATP supervisor watched this match very closely. Koellerer made it look like he was trying early, had break points against the Spaniard's serve in the first set, got out to about 1.61 and then went according to the script, I mean went to water under the pressure....
