British number one Andy Murray says players “deserve to know everything” as he reacts to reports about match fixing in tennis.

SOUNDBITE (English) Andy Murray, 2nd seed: “From my perspective, any time there is — you know, if there is corruption in any sport, you know, you want to hear about it. Obviously, you know, some of the stuff that I read yesterday I wasn’t aware of. Some of it I was already. I was already aware of. And, yeah, I mean, I guess, you know, as a player you just want to be made aware kind of everything that’s going on. I think, you know, we deserve to know everything that’s sort of out there. You know, some of it will be true; some of it might not be true. But, you know, I’m always very curious with that stuff across really all sports, as well. I think, you know, sports could in general be much, much more transparent.
“I didn’t know that so many matches had been flagged up with the betting companies. I wasn’t aware of that. I knew that there had been some, but not as many as there were. That was it. (Question: Novak said he was approached in 2007. Has anyone come to you at a point where…) No. I never got approached with anything like that in all my career.”
