Default 2013 MTF Mug of the Month: Sao Paulo Beach Tennis February

I will use Johnny's same format for the first post. And I will also retro-award November to Almagro and December to USTA based on the nominations made in the 2012 thread.

Kind of similar to the bandwagon player of the month award, this one is given to the player who loses terribly against people they should win against, sucks horribly, loses people money, says something arseclownish in an interview, has an incident in a match, whatever the case may be, but anything that gives that player "Mug Points"

Other criteria involve:

1. Playing well below your capability.

2. Mental incapacity (AKA: lack of balls)

3. Losing to someone you really shouldn't

4. Failing to live up to expectation

5. Losing Jaap or dylan money

6. Saying dumb shit in interviews, yelling at umpires, yelling at ballboys , and general arse-clowning

7. (Applies to organizations: bad organizing, play conditions, letting rain fall too much, or having pot holes on the courts)

Ferrer or Chardy would have to deliver a pretty huge choke to overcome this

Do it. I won't really care. I don't have to do anything to impress anyone, either good or bad. At the same time, I don't have to not do anything to impress anyone, either good or bad.

I bet even your few months old daughter would automatically put her hands around her neck if she was watching this match, you know how brutally honest and perceptive babies are

Shame I missed Almagro's "performance".

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Unless one of the players left in the draw chokes from 2 sets up as well as having a shitload of match points, Mugro easily takes this one.

Just buy some tickets to the local circus, what you will see won't be much different from what Ferrer and Almagro delivered yesterday, especially late 3rd set and the entire 4th set.

He has secured it for the YEAR. Time to announce the winner and move on to 2014.

It wasn't just a regular choke.

It was a laughable, gut wrenching, heart breaking, feeble, shameful, shambolic, pathetic, unbelievable, shanking, piss it all away, throw it down the drain, mental midget, monstrosity, career defining, psyche scarring, ridiculous, horror show of a mega choke.

He's blown the biggest oppotunity of his career, let's give Nico some consolation with this award.

Served three times (not including the tiebreak) for the match. Zero MPs. Six breaks of serve, 4 breaks after going up 2 sets.
