That's interesting as it would definitely explain the foot problems he had during the hard court season. It's certainly possible because you can run with a broken toe (one of my friends had one a couple of years ago), it just restricts your movement, slows you down a little and would certainly stop him pushing off on his serve.
It was a tough loss today but overall I'm happy with the way he played. His service rhythm is finally back which is great to see. It was a high quality, entertaining match with lots of great rallies and big winners from both guys. He obviously has to work on closing out matches when he is in front but this is one of those loses that should hurt him enough that he will learn from it.
I'm looking forward to see how he plays in his next tournament because there are a lot of positives to draw from today.
