1- If my favourite player loses, he's choking. No way can he lose playing his normal level.
2- If a player plays 2 consecutive bad points after having played well, he's choking.
3- If a player loses a match after having match points, he choked. The opponent's level of play on match points is irrelevant.
4- If a player loses more than one tie break in a match, he's a choker. Infact if he loses any tie break at all, he's probably a choker and a mug.
5- If a player is broken back he choked. However if he doesn't manage a single break point in the entire match and wins in tie breaks he's a mental giant.
6- If Troicki is playing, he's choking.
7- If a top player loses against a lower ranked player, he choked.
8- Getting aced on break points= choking.
9- Losing a match while having won a set instantly labels you as a choker.
10- Players don't outthink, outplay their opponents, they outchoke or outmug them.
Anyone wants to continue the list?

A player could also be unlucky (aka Sapoed principle or The 5% rule) - player loses because he was unlucky/his opponent was too lucky.
“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
Orange Wombat's Rule: Carlos Berlocq is a legend. If you don't think this, you are a mug. When Warlocq loses a match, he is being generous and doing the opponent a favor. When he wins a match, he is a hero (which he is anyway).
