PRAGUE, Czech Republic, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Czech Republic native Jan Hernych says he has been asked to lose his matches on the men's tennis tour, but refused, a report says.
"I was approached (at tournaments) in Moscow and Saint Petersburg," Hernych told the Sport after saying he received a phone call from a man who spoke English.
"When I said no, he hung up the phone immediately." He added, "If you ask me, it would be crazy to accept such a bribe."
No player has been disciplined for throwing any match, but Davydenko was accused of slow play by the umpire in his 1-6, 7-5, 6-1 loss to unheralded qualifier Marin Cilic of Croatia Oct. 25 in the second round of the St. Petersburg (Russia) Open.
