At last year's Australian Open, the players were caught by surprise when a report was published on the eve of the season-opening Grand Slam alleging widespread match-fixing in the sport.This year, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and other stars of the game seem better prepared. Last season's tournament began beneath a cloud of suspicion after a report by BBC and BuzzFeed alleged that tennis authorities had overlooked suspected cases of match-fixing involving some top players, none of whom were named. Federer, in response, called the situation "super serious" and argued that anyone who engages in match-fixing should be identified publicly.Federer said this is where tennis officials need to be focusing their efforts.
