2012 MTF Mug of the Month: Wawrinka at it again

Kind of similar to the bandwagon player of the month award, this one is given to the player who loses terribly against people they should win against, sucks horribly, loses people money, says something arseclownish in an interview, has an incident in a match, whatever the case may be, but anything that gives that player "Mug Points"

Other criteria involve:

1. Playing well below your capability.

2. Mental incapacity (AKA: lack of balls)

3. Losing to someone you really shouldn't

4. Failing to live up to expectation

5. Losing Jaap or dylan money

6. Saying dumb shit in interviews, yelling at umpires, yelling at ballboys , and general arse-clowning
