Car won't start after 1 year!

My 02 Hyundai Accent was off the road for one year.  I tried to start it in august and it started for about a second then went dead. 

Recently, I noticed the gas cap off in the winter and suspect water might've gotten into the tank. I tried cranking the engine so might've gotten into the system. Now, after charging the battery, the car just cranks weakly but wont start. 

I'm going to siphon as much gas and water out of the tank as I can, then refill with fresh gas. 

Does anyone have any tips on how to get a car that's been off the road for awhile to start.
