    Tennis shoes today suck

    True. I wore tennis shoes for fencing and found badminton shoes much lighter while still being supportive. They’re going way overboard with the thick uppers and weight.

    Novak wearing contact lens?

    I’m sorry to hear that. I was only mildly myopic, although enough to make sports less pleasurable. 5 years on however, it was 100% worthwhile. No more contacts. No more glasses. Why doesn’t djokovic do it with all the means he has is curious to say the least.

    Tsitsipas new 2019 "Barricade"?

    Certainly. Although i’ve never tried any basketball shoe from Adidas, i was going by their tennis footwear which utilise boost. Perhaps the basketball ones have more response, but the solecourt boost is very dead in the forefoot.

    Tsitsipas new 2019 "Barricade"?

    It’s clear that boost in the forefoot is not suitable for sports with demanding footwork. It feels ‘dead’ with each landing, almost like a sinking feeling, i can see why runners take to it but tennis is very different. Feel is crucial.

    Sascha Zverev wearing Ubersonic 2's in Monte Carlo vs Fognini

    That’s right. You push off using your forefoot, but the mushiness of boost makes you feel sort of sluggish, as if you’re not able to pounce.... obviously you can, just a question of feel. Very different from last year’s barricade boost, owning both, the difference was immediately noticeable.

    Sascha Zverev wearing Ubersonic 2's in Monte Carlo vs Fognini

    It’s not a good material for sports that require quick changes of direction. Your foot feels like it’s sinking into the ground, instead of making you pounce. Totally Understand going with bounce instead.

    Which is ironic as high level football‘s stinking with money. Football’s too commercialised now. It’s a business. Rich clubs get the best players.

    abuse doesn’t get you plane tickets and hotel lodging. If you’re one of these parents but have no money you may as well not put your kid through the trouble.
