This week I catch up with Rene Zandbergen. Rene has worked with our podcast sponsor Asics, for 22 years helping develop shoes and working alongside the world's best athletes to help continually improve the Asics range of shoes.

We talk about:

  • His 22 years at Asics so far
  • Working with Novak to develop his latest shoes, the Court FF3
  • The differences in the 3 top Asics tennis shoes, Resolution 9, Solution Speed FF2 and Court FF3
  • Finding the right shoes for Juniors
  • Using the correct sole for your playing surface
  • Sliding on hard courts

It's a really insightful episode into Tennis Shoes and if you are like Novak and always looking for small areas to improve this episode is for you.
