Dolgopolov: illness and clownship

I guess mainly fans know that Alex suffers from Gilbert's Syndrome. That`s why he usually has a lot of troubles in first round match in case of long trip, needs time to adjust. Though I think that his, let`s say, frivolous attitude to some matches is incredible itself. During one match he can play for 15 minutes like GOAT and then lose 10 points in a row.

I wonder when you are watching his matches and Dolg is going to inevitable loss you can distinguish yourself where he is just in poor form, the obvious health case and tanking whatever the reason is? Personally I can`t.

I understand that more or less Alexandr will always have to fight in every match having this Syndrome, but still it`s not always is/was/will be the main reason for him to lose.

Any notices for him to have different behaviour, body language - something like this, anyone?
