I'm sure he can afford to see any MD in this world. I wouldn't worry about it.

Michael Jackson used the hyperbaric chamber after the burnings he got on his head while filming the Pepsi commercial when his hair got in fire. That is also when they furst discovered his lupus. (he had lupus too) Hyperbaric chamber was used so that the tissue would heal faster.

Re: Does Novak Djokovic suffer from vitiligo?

It can be fungal disease. Tinea versicolor indeed makes spots like that. But we cannot be sure. I think we should not get into detail about his health since he never speaks openly abut it and that is his full right. If he wanst he can talk, if not no.
For example; for long time people claimed he had asthma, I didn't really believe it. A lot of asthmatics in sports (e.g. cross country skiing) are registered and permitter to use medicine. His father denied all the asthma rumours back in 2007, attributing his breathing problems to deviated nose septum. Ok, maybe he has a mild form. BUT how was he having breathing problems when losing and no probs when winning and playing a 30+ rally with running from corner to corner?
Then the allergies to pollen appeared and disappeared.
Looks like he is prone to all sorts of allergies...
But all that suddenly disappeared when he didn't eat gluten. I understand that. But he is not a coeliac. He only has gluten intolerance. Even his doctor said - "he is going to eat food like the coeliac patients". But then again, he threw all into water yesterday when he said he was going to eat gluten at his party. Which leads me to think he has no gluten sensitivity.. Why would a person risk of putting his health in danger again?

Yup
Re: Does Novak Djokovic suffer from vitiligo?

It looks to me more like a bad case of Tinea Versicolour. Not a doctor but it's similar to the one I had. And it could take as long as a month or two for it to disappear provided he actually takes treatment for it.

The white spots were very noticeable yesterday during the semifinal. I hope he's going to be okay.

Don't think so as a fungal infection is pink/red hued not completely devoid of color/pigment.

BTW the question is unanswerable unless/until Nole answers it. We can speculate all we want but

And I'm assuming you are speaking for the world? Have you even seen the pressers these players get? Reporters ask all kinds of questions and they don't care about privacy or personal issues. If he's having these spots for more than two months (Beijing), someone on air will finally mention it or inquire him about it. I'd bet on it.
