Roger Federer is speaking out against the allegations claiming the tennis pro used information about his matches to help the president of his management company win bets.
According to reports from TMZ, Agate Printing, Inc. filed a lawsuit against IMG and its owner, Ted Forstmann, claiming Roger gave Forstmann information about a match he played in at the 2007 French Open, which Forstmann later used to place a $40,000 wager on the tennis superstar.
“It’s disappointing that someone’s throwing my name around. I would never do such a thing,” Roger said at a press conference in China.
“My fans know that, the people who know me… I have nothing to hide. I’m sorry for those who think there is something to the story. But there’s nothing,” he added.
