    Very obvious they all went to Asics or something other than Fila shoes for the clay. Filas are just not good shoes IMO. I tried the Sentinels on....not good!

    I noticed frodo bagnis was wearing the fila shoes in his win over julien bennetteau.

    What did you not like about the new sentinel shoes? Not as good as the old rads or alfas? Are nikes and adidases any better?

    You know... Either that or Fila didn't want to make a clay court shoe?

    It was just a soup. It was not an entrée. You still owe me lunch.

    Alfa's were ok comfort wise... Nike and Adidas are much better fitting and quality overall. The Sentinel is not a good fitting shoe, too low cut and loose in the heel.

    Probably that, there arn´t any Fila´s with specific clay soles available (yet?)
    Otherwise, seen many pros this year wearing Sentinels on hard courts, can´t be a bad shoe. Gonna watch Carlos Berlocq today and se if he still wears his Filas.

    For the club players, price is a big advantage of wearing Sentinel. Apparently, the quality is quite good as well.

    The Alfas were very comfortable - I'll give them that.
