MATHIEU MONTCOURT

The sport of tennis has been plagued by illegal betting and potential match fixing. Although it hasn’t been reported on much in America, there are numerous reports that the Russian mafia has fixed professional tennis matches. Even at Wimbledon. In 2007, offshore books suspended betting on Russian tennis player Nikolay Davydenko after $7 million was suddenly and suspiciously wagered on one of his matches.

In May, French tennis player Mathieu Montcourt was suspended by the ATP for betting on games. Now Montcourt is dead.

The 24-year-old Montcourt was found dead in his Paris apartment. He was the 119th ranked player in the world.

MARTINA NAVRATILOVA

The lawyer for tennis great Martina Navratilova’s ex-wife and longtime lesbian lover says his client is ready to tell all if she doesn’t get a settlement “to her liking.” According to the lead item in today’s Page Six of the New York Post, Toni Layton knows enough about the “storage facility of” skeletons in Navritalova’s closet to demand more money.

The lawyer says that although some people might view Layton as a “gold digger,” she is really standing up for gay rights.

ETHNIC VIOLENCE ERUPTS AT THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN

Australian fans went to a riot today and a tennis match broke out.

For the third straight year, ethnic Serbs and Croats clashed at the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne. Violence erupted in the stands with punches being thrown and people being hit with everything from bottles to flagpoles. The incident began when a group of Serbian fans watching the match of countryman Novak Djokovic began hurling racial taunts at Croats in the stands.

A FoxSports report described onlookers as “horrified” at the level of violence. More than 150 people were ejected from the stadium. Shockingly, Australian police did not make a single arrest in the fracas.
