So far, there hasn’t been much movement with the numbers.
In the third quarter of 2018, the TIU received 63 alerts of suspicious matches through its agreement with the betting industry. It’s been almost exactly that number three of the last four years, with a spike in 2016.
Of those, 37 took place at the Futures level, two at the Grand Slam level, and none on the WTA and ATP Tours.
