I Have seen these guys on a few occasions throw in the towel with no effort what so ever, which for me should be granted fine or ban!!!!

Kafelinkov (Tanking matches, involved in Match Fixing)
Safin

Ironically, both come from an Eastern-European background, coincidence ? I think not. :D

Money and sex seems to be the main focus...

Oh, also ... Coria. He admitted to tanking matches because he missed his GF back in Argentina ....

There's a load of players, but Kafelnikov, Safin & Coria are the 3 that come to mind.

+ against Henman TMS Cincinnati this year. One of the most appaling and shameful tanks I've ever seen

It was seriously the worst effort I've ever seen a pro give. He just wanted to get off the court as quickly as possible.

Gaudio and Acasuso.

Coria?? I'm not so sure. I think that his mind doesn't want to get off the court, but ... he is no the same guy since the final of RG 2004

Verdasco : The number 1 in the list. No doubts about it. Sometimes talent without sacrifice produces this kind of players . Daddy´s boy as he is , he doesn´t like to effort at all. It´s a shame, he is such a nice guy but his performance in US OPEN 2005 4th round against Nieminen should be available for all this " ATP stars wannabes " titled " things to avoid in a important match. He´ll grow up and sooner or later will become a huge player
Gaudio : In the past he didn´t want to play many matches and didn´t give a shit about them. Still happens nowadays like he did in TMS Rome this year against David Ferrer . He´s in love and guys do weird and stupid things when they´re in love. Figure out this combination
Acasuso : I saw one of the biggest tankings ever this year. In a late night match in Barcelone against Wawrinka with 50 spectators as a maximum he told his coach " me importa un carajo este partido , estoy podrido " which means " I don´t give a shit for this match, I´m fed up " . He lost double 6-3
Feliciano López : Another classic. This " party animal " went to many matches already thinking about banging some of the hostess of the tournament. He loses faith easily and moreover loves too much the tennis backstage.........
Fernando Gonzalez : Sometimes Gonzo can be funnier than a Seinfeld episode. He talks all the time to De la Peña ( his coach ) and hits winners from everywhere, most of them go out by far but some are the greatest shots you´ll ever see live. Gonzo is a MUST everywhere you, if he´s playing and in a bad mood go to that court, you´ll never regret doing that.

Ferrer
Puerta
Labadze
Gaudio (sorry)

Agassi - for his "off court" un-professional-ness - Tournament Director's nightmare pulling out at midnight constantly before the draw takes place...
