Davydenko Expects To Be Cleared

Nikolay Davydenko will be cleared of all match-fixing charges imminently, according to the Russian's lawyer.

Irregular betting patterns surrounding Davydenko's defeat by Martin Vassallo Arguello at last August's Sopot Open prompted the ATP to launch an inquiry.

But Frank Immenga told BBC Sport: "They should clear him any moment now."

And that may prompt retributive action from the 27-year-old, with Immenga saying: "We're certainly looking at it. The whole inquiry has been a farce."

Glad all these dramas finally are over for him. It is very saddening if Davydenko is in fact innocent. Davy is already the least popular among the top seeds, and ATP certainly did not treat him fairly or even with respect. It looked as though guilty until proven innocent. I couldn't imagine they would do such to the other top 3.
