name top 5 unproffesinal tennis players who have not always gave 100%

1.N.Massu
2.N.Kiefer
3.J.Melzer
4.R.Soderling
5.M.Ancic

I Have seen these guys on a few occasions throw in the towel with no effort what so ever, which for me should be granted fine or ban!!!!

1. Marat - i love the guy to death, but he drives me nuts sometimes when he just quits trying. Marat has been fined for tanking, has anyone else? I do think banning someone is far too harsh.

Kafelinkov (Tanking matches, involved in Match Fixing)
Safin

Ironically, both come from an Eastern-European background, coincidence ? I think not.

Money and sex seems to be the main focus...

Oh, also ... Coria. He admitted to tanking matches because he missed his GF back in Argentina ....

There's a load of players, but Kafelnikov, Safin & Coria are the 3 that come to mind.

Marcelo Rios, though it got much better at the end of his career.

I disagree about Soderling.

Safin is the main culprit.

It was seriously the worst effort I've ever seen a pro give. He just wanted to get off the court as quickly as possible.

Gaudio and Acasuso.

Coria?? I'm not so sure. I think that his mind doesn't want to get off the court, but ... he is no the same guy since the final of RG 2004

VAMOS LA LEGION ARGENTINA !!!!
