I had the flu a couple of weeks ago and some days I felt pretty fine and some days I felt crappy. Fed could technically feel sick one day, well the next and then sick again. I have also had tendinitis where some days when I try to lift weights my arm kills me and then 2 days later my arm feels great.
Yeah you can never tell what a player is feeling or how it's effecting them. Illness can act in many different ways
How to clarky - work out most or only realistic outcome, claim the opposite
Federer, Djokovic, Delpo fan (also like Nalbandian, Dimitrov, Tsonga)
