That was strange.. he asked for one of his racquets to be restrung and gave it to a ball boy during a game on Ferrer's serve. Did he ever get that racquet back and use it during the match?

Perhaps. Later on, he took out a racquet, and the commentator said that must be the one he had had restrung.

they do that routinely if they don't have enough rackets at the tension they think optimal for that day, just in case.

This is the first time I've seen him do it. But as you say, he must have decided the tension wasn't right for the day's job.
