either way, no not a devastating injury and not discounting him, he'll be back playing high level tennis in a handful of months, but you never know how much of an impact even a little bit of nagging pain can have on a guy with his style of game...we shall see
I wasn't trying to make it sound easy (well...easier than an ACL). 6 weeks of no weight bearing is pretty rough, but yeah, making sure no pain or discomfort sticks around is key.
