I used to work in the footwear business. I understand that most shoe companies copy each other to one degree or another...there's only so much you can do with leather, rubber and mesh.

I would just like to say my French Open picks are not only still alive, but they're looking very good to at least make the finals - Jankovic and Federer. Jelena is in good shape. Fed will need to pick it up but I'm still bullish on him.
