Never mind Mug if the month, the King of Mug Award of the Year goes to Golubev for last night's epic chokefest. Actually went to bed after Golubev was up in the 3rd set, knowing that he would do his absolute best to somehow ending up losing the match.

Though, Golubev has lost to Bellucci, Stepanek, and Stakhovsky in addition to his performance tonight.

I still think Troicki's epic choking vs. an even bigger choker vs. Falla along with his dreadful showing vs. Fognini in Cincy and a wretched choke vs. Monfils in Canada might win him the award.

Unless Murray loses to Somdev tomorrow.
You should take your own advice.

Yep, this is just a kneejerk reaction. If he had lost 6-3 6-3 6-3 without posing any trouble to Nadal whatsoever and played in his shell not giving himself any shot at the win, nobody would be calling him mug of the month, which makes no sense. He gave it a go and wasn't mentally there to do it, but otherwise would have taken it to 5 sets. Can't say that about many of Nadals opponents who'd just roll over for him.

Troicki deserves it this month.

Viktor Troicki has outdone himself this month and has won the prestigious Mug of the Month award for August.

For the appetizer, Troicki was broken 3 times by a tiring Isner in the Washington QF, losing 1-6 in the decider, DF away a break, hitting 2nd serves barely 70 mph and allowing return king John Isner to break him 3 times en route to the loss. Lost it mentally in that 3rd set.

For the main course, Troicki in Canada against Monfils made himself a legend. After winning the first set 6-3, Troicki missed 3 match points when Monfils served at *5-6 in the 2nd set before being BAGELED in the tiebreak 7-0 by Monfils. To top it off, Troicki served for the match at *5-3 in the third before choking again and losing it in the 3rd set tiebreak

For dessert, Troicki decided to lose to Fabio Fognini, The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World in Cincy, losing 4-6, 1-6 in a wretched performance against Fognini, who was 0-6 on hardcourt on the year prior to this win.

And the icing on the cake, up 2 sets to 1, blows 3 match points against mental giant Alejandro Falla in the US Open and losing 7-5 in the fifth.

What a king of mugs this Troicki is. Well done, mate

And Golubev has been worse than him. By far.

The month is young, plenty of time for mugging around the next few weeks.

The USTA surely an early candidate.
