Most Declined Player of 2012
 
Well DY and Bogomolov come to mind, add some more and then I'll make a poll.

By decline of 2012 I mean biggest decline from the end of 2011 to now.

Noserer: losing in Basel, a tournament he practically owns, on indoor HC to Del Potro and slipping from computer #1 to #2 :haha::haha::haha:

Nadull went from winning the French Open to losing in the 2nd round of Wimbledon to not even playing the USO. :superlol:

BS. He played much better in Basel this year than in 2011; difference being he faced Nishikori in the final last year, this year he faced Delpo. Kei was nervous playing his first 500 final in Federer's den of all places and obviously doesn't have the same weapons as JMDP to force Federer to be constantly on the defensive.

That's called injury....something Olderertards are quick to bring up as an excuse when Pinocchio loses, it was hard to stay on top when you have "mono" and "bad back". :facepalm:

Nadal is not that obvious. He still won a slam. But the fact that he lost to Rosol spelled imminent decline for him. He isn't winning any more slams and will fall out of the top 10 in 2013.

Do you know any players outside of Dull and Noserer? :o

Among top players, Tsonga by far. He's a shadow of what he was 12 months ago, hardly a threat to beat any top player at the moment, the QF vs Nole in Paris was the last good match he played. He has truly become Clownga, missing every other return and spraying a gazillion UEs per match. Hope he can find himself again soon.

1. It's fairly obvious since he's been getting a lot of attention for his injury
2. We're talking biggest declines in 2012, bring that up in 2013. :rocker2:
