Thumbs down Disapointments Of 2009 Thus far..

I dont want to use the phrase ''fall from grace'' but ive realised that many players from 2 or 3 years ago have become alarmingly stagnant this year.

Its like accidently opening your sons/daughter/brother/sister exam results and seeing them fail their exams.

Who does the ''Im so disapointed in you'' tag belong to so far this year?

Im gonna leave out the high profile players like djokovic, safin or nadal because they will just cruise to win this poll,i want more interest and disection into the other players on the tour.

Please feel free to add further suggestions

ones that get off the hook and have an excuse

Ancic-Injured
Nieminen-Injured
Moya-Injured
Nalbandian-Injured
Tursunov-Injured
Monfils-Injured
Gasquet-Suspended
Baghdatis-diet/injury

The ones that have at least tried to improve

Blake
Ferrero
Robredo
Andreev


Here are the contenders...

Juan Ignacio Chela




Ivan Ljubicic




Janko Tipsarevic




Mikhail Youzhny




Nicolas Almagro



Paul Henri Mathieu




Robby Ginepri




Eduardo Schwank




Gilles Simon




Ernest Gulbis




For me its Misha, use to be so hard to bt

Chela had 2 major injuries and he was past his best, when he got them.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The ''Im So Disapointed In You'' Tut Tut..

Dont understand why Simon is on there, right know Almagro, should be in the top 20 for sure and is 41 in the rankings.

Re: ''Im So Disapointed In You''

Gulbis is the one that I thought would be better at this point than has turned out.

Querrey is very disappointing to me too. Thought he would be further along even at 20. He has just plateaued and even dropped slightly the harder he works.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Re: ''Im So Disapointed In You''

Simon this year has been awful. But Gulbis definitely gets the prize; over a year now since he last got past the 2nd round in tournaments.

Simon hasn't been completely terrible...obviously he hasn't lived up to his ranking at all but this isn't the part of the year where he usually shines anyway. But he made the QF at the AO, 3R at RG, and 4R at Wimbledon so not terrible.

Players like Chela and Ljubicic had their best years more like 4 years ago

Schwank and Bellucci have been terrible so far.They were the best challenger players in 2008 and everyone expected much better results in ATP level.

Re: Disapointments Of 2009 Thus far..

The dissapointing thing about Simon is the fact that he's in the top 10 in the first place.

But the biggest I would have to say is Gulbis. Almagro second because his game is one of my absolute favorites to watch.
