As this tennis season winds down, some players are probably looking forward to putting 2016 behind them.

The 2016 season got off to a rough start with a match-fixing scandal. Maria Sharapova's suspension soon followed, and then a Zika virus scare kept many big names from the Summer Olympics in Rio.  

But this list is about players who failed to meet expectations in 2016. 

Roger Federer is not among the most disappointing despite his injury-plagued, abbreviated season. He didn't play below expectations, and surely he's frustrated that he couldn't play most of the year. Injury and not his play was the primary reason for disappointment. 

You also won't find any players under 20 on this list, like 19-year-old Belinda Bencic, who has fallen from a career-high of No. 7 earlier this year to No. 41. Players that young often take two steps forward and three steps back before settling into a groove.

This list is about people who performed well below expectations. Some players are veterans who lost a step and eventually their footing this year, while most inexplicably dropped out of the Top 20. 

Gael Monfils put in one of the more disappointing performances of the year in the semifinals of the U.S. Open, but he's not on this list because he's having one of the best seasons of his career. Meanwhile, Caroline Wozniacki and Grigor Dimitrov escaped the list because of late-season success. 

The following are the most disappointing players of 2016.
