    go downhill?

    Is go downhill a figurative meaning for "don't work out"? Is it a common expression?

    ex)John was as famous for his tennis skills as he was for his fits of temper on the court. One afternoon, I was playing an important singles match against John. When things didn't go his way, he began to go downhill, complaining about the game, screaming at himself, and slamming his racket....
