Knee pains are a warning. Maybe something is wrong with your posture, especially of the hip area muscles.
I played tennis for years but my gluteus medius was weak. Tested with the Trendlendberg test.
Needs a medically trained specialist for diagnosis and treatment with physical therapy.

you do have to find a particular insole that fits your shoe
personally, for the addidas B6, i use a sorbathane, mainly for
shock absorbsion and comfort, this shoe is so heavy and stiff, the lateral support is outstanding, downside for me, heavy and slow
for my asics GR4s and GR5s, i use green superfeet, they have a plastic
stiffner in the insole, as i am concerned with the lateral support
my GR4s are so worn out laterally, that they feel like bedroom slippers
so the insole give me the lateral support.
my GR5s are new, so maybe i dont need the lateral support, but i put them
there are a lot of good insoles
i am 5'9" 158#, but still i am concerned, as here in CA, its all hardcourts, and as i am not as young as i use to be
without the insoles, i am sure that i might start to develop knee pain
I'll have to look for Sorbathane, but some older gel insoles in the GR5s still caused me pain in the balls of my left foot (that I've first experienced about 10 days ago), during a ladder match (more like after it). I was also moving poorely, kindly unsteady/woobley, as witnessed even during rallying after the blow-out match (against me). I'm better off with the original insoles.
I did play a short, one hour ladder match before the one above in the original GR5s insoles and that was ok(we got kicked out off the court though).
Now each time I went back to CB's 4.3 (but for friendly matches, not ladder) and didn't have any more problems (actually I was feeling better the following day).
I'm way heavier then you though, 220 lbs at 6'2".
