Steve said that every time they switched sides of the court, he had to work to smooth out the HarTru on his side to prevent bad bounces. So assuming that his opponent did have some kind of raised tread on his shoes, is that OK?
I searched through “Friend at Court” and the ITF rules and could not find anything that speaks to the issue of approved footwear.
Does anyone know?
PS Bob Wilkie once forgot his shoes and played (and beat me) barefooted!
