With a minimum of five matches, Argentina’s Maximo Gonzalez is a perfect 0-5 on the year to lead all players in the 2015 Worst Player race, but of special note is Ernests Gulbis and his stellar 1-11 win-loss record in 2015 while maintaining a No. 22 ranking.

RZ Says:

Surprised (and sad) to see Benneteau on this list but now that I think about it, I haven’t seen much of him this year – probably because he keeps losing.

Navdeep Says:

Gulbis is 1-11 this year !!
laughable and quite unfortunate as well. He has tje talent of a top 10 player.

Eric Says:

In all honesty, shouldn’t we be suspecting at this point that someone, somewhere has made a lot of money from this magical 1-11 record?

Eric Says:

Then again, maybe he just sucks now.

RZ Says:

Gulbis doesn’t need the money. He just needs motivation and focus. I said this before and I’m not kidding – his mom needs to tell him to consider quitting tennis. Last time she did that, he had a good run and broke into the top 10 (for a very short time at #10).

chris ford1 Says:

RZ – True. Mom&Dad tell Ernest that his days of self indulgence are over given he has no success and is embarrassing the family? Time to give the glam life up and put his nose to the grindstone and the drudgery of banking P&L sheets?
Gulbis would light a fire.

jane Says:

last year gulbis knocked fed out of the french open and made the semis. now what can we expect?

Markus Says:

Dimitrov should be in that list.

Wog Boy Says:

^^ Absolutely

skeezer Says:

Gulbis needs a spankin from somebody. Wakeup and play dude!

On a more interesting note, what do ya all think of this? ;
