Chardy. "Alright, it's 4-4 Ad-out on a fast hardcourt. My opponent just lobbed me, then fell down. Guess I'd better hit a 110 MPH backhand on the edge of the line!"

Clownga. The muggery he put up in that clay masters in 2008 (MC?) against Djokovic was epic. Djokovic was one step short of just keeling over and passing out, but Tsonga still felt it necessary to blast winners (into the net) and gift the match.

Verdasco

Gets nervous and double faults on important points, easily frustrated and then can hardly focus, tries to bash winners from every angle and makes no adjustments to his game in matches. So frustrating as a fan to watch

he wanted to put some pressure on GGL because his previous 2nd serve got returned via GGL's particle accelerator.

Chardy. As he is the dumbest ballbasher to have ever existed.

Raonic is closely following in his footsteps.

Gulbis. Huge serve, huge groundstrokes, could be top 20 easy by now. Too bad his shot selection is pathetic in crucial moments, he's an impatient brat who can't keep focus and is a mental midget.

He does that often when he's down. I actually like it. If you're losing anyway, might as well go down in flames. And sometimes it actually works (the 1st match point) and you look like a genius.
