1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    That is, shoes to wear while playing tennis on a clay court, not sneakers/trainers in general.

    About six months ago I bought a pair of the new Reebok pump tennis shoes, mostly out of nostalgia because I so loved the original tennis Pumps when I was a teenager. They were the first tennis shoes I bought in the USA. However, either I've changed or the new ones suck compared to the old ones, because they feel like deadweights on my feet. Either that, or they're very unbalanced in their distribution of mass. I can't tell which one. Wearing them on the court, I feel as if they're dulling my reactions and making me think about each movement instead of reacting instinctively. The support is quite nice, though.

    Can anyone recommend a shoe with similar support but maybe a lower mass and/or better weight distribution?

    the adidas climacool feather II; very light, and very comfortable. if by support, you mean ankle support, they might not be the best choice. i use them on hardcourts, as does agassi, but they're made for clay.

    Hmm. Ankle support is a big issue for me, because my ankles have a history of getting twisted into knots. But I'll check them out.
