you let it go, you don't play coz' you're dominated or you're a headcase like Gaudio... you're just present on the court

Tanking = You're losing in a set so you completely abandon your game plan and throw the set away.

Monfils does not come back to win many sets, but the choice from this list is obvious, Gaston Gaudio.

I've seen Murray tank a set in order to preserve energy for the next set. He done this against Nalbandian at Wimbledon.

It has to be Gaudio though.

I say Gaston. At least I've learnt another bit of tennis terminology :)

I think Kafelnikov was an artist in this.

On the women's side there are many more...Dokic for one.

Gaudio proved it again, at Monte-Carlo. Monfils is young, but he still is a tanker. Oh god, they're all tankers. I can think of tons of tankers. What's with all the tanking these days.

lol, tough choice.
Isn't Marat still the only player in tennis history who has ever been fined for tanking? :angel:
but Gaudio is a serious contender for the title... :scratch: I can't choose :p
