    '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!

    Shriver's comment after the women's doubles finals

    She says this twice at matchpoint, "... That's $420,000 going to be split between errani and vinci. That will buy them a lot of pasta!!!!". I am speechless. Where's Jason Goodall when you need decent commentary!

    For people in academia..

    Can anyone in academia tell me how they balance work 'life' and personal 'life'? Do you even have a 'personal life'??? Between research, teaching, mentoring and trying actively to become a bodybuilder, there is no time for anything else. Tennis has taken a back seat - I've played 4-5 times in...

    Henri Laconte commentary on the tsonga-mello match

    Does he know there are people listening? Sexual innuendoes, acting like a fanboy, laughing out loud, very juvenile behaviour from a middle-aged man!

    Donnay - too confusing

    I haven't been keeping up with recent developments in racquet tech(since 2011) until about a week or so ago. Shocked to see the # of donnays out there - red, extreme red, flaming red and what not. Wouldn't one mid and a couple of midpluses with different string patterns suffice??

    Djokovic vs. the others

    Even when Federer was winning everything in sight, I was never bored nor did I wish to see someone dethrone him. It was a little different with Nadal but he was somehow tolerable. However, and no offense to the guy, I am sick of turning on the tv and seeing djokovic win everything. it's...

    Questions about muscle food

    1. Can egg beaters be eaten raw? 2. I eat meat twice a day (~ 6 oz of chicken or turkey or salmon). Some people advise against it but I don't know if there's any other way to gain lean mass without it. I don't worry about cholesterol since I have a healthy diet and do sprint training and...

    Top Half of the men's draw

    Not a single match seems appealing to watch, come Saturday. All the action is in the bottom half, no pun intended. Same with the women's draw except all the action is in the top half. Extremely skewed draw!
