Anytime the fourth-ranked tennis player in the world loses to the 89th-ranked player in the world, it raises eyebrows. When the fourth-ranked player has previously been accused of throwing match, the eyebrows are raised even higher.

Nikolay Davydenko, who was accused of withdrawing from a match as part of a match-fixing scandal (Betfair called attention to it and cancelled all bet from the match) months ago, lost to Benjamin Becker in the first round at Wimbledon yesterday.

When asked about the match-fixing scandal in his post-match press conference, Davydenko replied ""Nobody can prove anything. I think there's no match-fixing in tennis."

A little defensive, no?
