    'Orthopedic' tennis shoe recommendation

    I'm looking for the shoes that are known for extra support, if such a thing exists, for plantar fascitis. Been suffering from it off and on for a year and my prince t22 are no longer adequate. I do wear an orthopedic dress shoe so any recommendation on a similar tennis shoe would be great. Thanks!

    Yonex RDX 500 mp HD thoughts?

    I used it a long time ago - it twisted in your hands on even slightly off-centre shots. The throat was rather flexy, something I've never liked on racquets, but others might. The entire RDX series was like that. The preceding MP tour and following RDS models were stiffer at the throat and seemed...

    Stopped watching (on a regular basis) after the Monday night wars of the 90s. The return of Sting has caught my attention but it appears he's too old to participate regularly.

    Has anyone here heard the song siempre hay esperanza by sade? It's an instrumental piece with a long sax solo - one of the best pieces I've ever heard.

    Best Serve & Volley Frame?

    Anything in the Wilson Prostaff 6.1 series. What I have found is that the distribution of the stiffness of the frame makes a huge difference (throat vs. head). I could never volley with any accuracy with 'soft' frames like the redondo or fischer vt pros.

    How to ask girls out?

    I can tell you from personal experience that hitting the gym does nothing to improve your prospects. Of course, that's not the reason why I train but it has no effect on the ladies. And don't even try to pick someone up there, it's a landmine.

    Video of 1HBH

    Yes, the quality isn't great - it was shot with an old camera (that's why it has no audio). I do have some trouble with high balls on the BH; it's not a big deal when I have time to set the feet right.

    Ramesh Krishnan

    I met him in the early 90s when I was a teen and India had just returned from DC against France in France. Nice, pleasant guy to talk to - seemed to want to retreat from the limelight and keep things quiet.
