Betting controversyEdit

On October 24, 2007, Pašanski was beaten by Dmitry Tursunov in the 2nd round of the St. Petersburg Open by the score 4–6, 6–3, 6–4. The match was associated with highly irregular betting patterns on the online betting exchange Betfair. Large bets were being made on Tursunov to win at odds 1.2 when Pašanski was leading by a set and a break, extremely low odds in such circumstances. There was suspicion among market observers that Pašanski threw the match, with or without the active collusion of Tursunov. However, Betfair decided not to void bets on the match.[2][3]
