Anyone in here seen this guy play ?

I saw him on tv once and he looked like he had one too many Red Bull before the match. Jumping and dancing if he plays well and almost psychotic if he is not.

Is he like that all the time or was that just a one time moment of insanity/happines ?

When they were in Chile, the Russians went golfing:
Gabashvili is a Tazmanian devil crossbread with a man! He tore up the course with huge pieces of lawn flying twenty yards further than the ball. On hole #6 he had sixteen shots. He kept hitting it from bunker to bunker so we couldn't see him half of the time. It looked like bombs were exploding on Normandy beach in there until he came out covered in sand with a bent sand wedge. He was yelling at the ball and chasing it with the club around the field. Pretty funny to watch, actually
:lol:

Yes, at the US Open last year against Marcos Daniel in I think the first round. It was the last match and went till porbably around midnight on some outer court. Gabashvili is a bit of headcase but he has some nice strokes and good serve, but I think his problems as he continues to ascend up the rankings may be more mental than anything.
