Re: Dolgopolov: illness and clownship

the illness is unfortunate but what's always bothered me with Dolgopolov is the serve.


Who taught him to serve? self-learned? It's not a solid serve. Not enough consistency when you sometimes play entire sets with like 30%-40% FS. Sometimes burn like every first serve in a game/entire tiebreak.


It's just unnecessary. Too much risk in that low toss and quick motion. He should take a year or two and change it even if it costs him in the short run. It'd be worth it for the rest of his career.
