THE LOW DOWN: Rafael Nadal rebuffs match-fixing claims, "I'm not so stupid as to not know what is going on," says Rafa


Rafael Nadal has come out swingning against the match-fixing allegations brought by Andy Murray.

Recently the Scot was quoted as saying, "It is pretty disappointing for all the players, but everyone knows that it goes on," [...] "It's difficult to prove. They can try their best until the last games in each set and then make some mistakes, hit a couple of double faults and that's it."

Hold up, says Rafa. Firing back at Andy's claims, the World No. 2 told the Spanish media, "I think he's gone overboard, I don't think anything like that happens," [...] "I'm the number two in the world, I've been in all the meetings, I see what goes on the circuit just like him and I'm not so stupid as to not know what is going on." [...] "I doubt very much that he (Murray) knows more than anyone else. I think that everyone gives it 100% and that there are no fixed games."

Does Rafa really believe there's no match-fixing occuring on the tours these days? We think the Spaniard is being naive. In any case, the drama continues...
