Vladislav Domrachev of SE talked to Alex:
Does your injured leg bother you?
And what about the size of a boot? Is it hard to walk?
I was just given this huge walker-boot. They couldn't find anything else and now there is no reason to change. The first two minutes it was painful, uncomfortable, but then I found the correct angle to place the foot on the ground, got used to it. Now I am even ready to dance.
So, it seems like you have committed a heroic act coming to Helsinki in the quarter-finals vs US with a broken foot, haven't you?
Well I did not know that the injury was so serious. I thought it was a bruise. The doctors told me to do x-ray, but I kept putting it off. Like, when it'd be over, then I would.
