Recovery time is short for this right?

Hoping he will be ready to conquer RG this fall.
Some sources say that you can fully recover in 2 months. I hope it's right.

Yes he has had that tape in the foot/ankle/shin area for many months now. This is what happens when you do not bend the knees at all and do not use the full power of the legs into the ball. The foot takes much more of a beating because it has to do the work of the entire lower chain, not just its normal job

tl;dr, Fog needs to adjust his technique and get more knee bend and non-ankle leg drive into his shots

Can’t believe he waited this long into the quarantine before deciding but perhaps ala Novak in 2017-18 he was hoping for them to heal w/o surgery during the layoff. Anyway, a little like Delpo, tremendous potential kind of mismanaged due to injuries & mental quirks but wishing for the best in post quarantine tennis season.

Fognini is the best ticket in tennis. Hope he can play a few more years at the top level.

The entire health sector of the country was in a state of emergency, so it could be that non-urgent operations were not possible, even for sports stars.

Depends on the day.

He can just tank or he can try 100 percent or he can play a 4 hour 5 set marathon vs. #399 at RG
