Who won August? All I see is Mayer had the lead, nothing official about him winning it after

Leo Mayer won August.

Losing to Donald Young was too much.

nevermind. I really like Cilic. But he pulled a Troicki and that is unforgivable. Can't drop a 5-1 vs Murray in slam. That should give you a guaranteed mug of the month nomination

Exactly. I love to call him Mugrin, just because it sounds so good, not because he is a mug (of the month) according to MTF.

Why is Cilic making such a lead in September.

He choked to the #4 player in the world. I think the occasion was just a little too big for him.

Many players would choke to a top player like Murray especially when he starts picking up his game like he did at 5-1 down.

If we want to talk about throwing momentum, Tsonga seems like a perfect candidate for September.
When you are the #6 player in the world, it might be acceptable to start slow and go down a break, but after coming back and getting back on serve he couldn't keep it together and got broken again.

After losing the first set, he kicked ass in the second winning it 6-1 with two breaks of serve. So at this point, you wouldn't expect a consistent top 10 player to just fade, but that's exactly what he did. He only won 3 more games.

To me, that is more muggy than Cilic choking to Murray

That's all well and true, but and it's a big but, these events you describe took place in August.

Can't be Cilic. The guy reached a slam QF ffs and no one expected him to beat Murray anyway. Yes he choked badly but that doesn't make him the mug of the month imo.
