Default 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?

Gilbert's affects him when he travels, not when he plays matches.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

What a stupid me. And yes, after he leaves plane in 10 minutes already it has no effect on him.

I just read a couple of interviews when he said that that after travelling he feels ill and cannot play matches, and never read when he actually plays matches he feels it.

Thank you, Helvorn for correcting me.

The thing is, if he feels it only sometimes, as a viewer you can never know when it is affecting him and when it is not.

Well he doesn't really pull out anywhere, so he obviously can play matches, the only thing he doesn't play because it's too much of a strain is Davis Cup.

I don't think there is a possibility for someone watching (be it live or on TV) to seriously differ between health problems and just bad play. His game is very risky, in general, so the line between triumph and desaster is always a very thin one.

What I just don't understand - given his health problems - that he schedules rather poorly. He has to pick his tournaments with more care and not entering as much as possible.
