Hi, I tested the full squat feet together and than go in a pistal squat position managed in http://www.mobilitywod.com/2013/12/pro-episode-57-managing-achilles-tendonitis/. Now, my right foot has an inversion (supinates) and turns out a little bit while my left foot is quit straight and in normal position. I always feel tension on the inside of the right ankle like it’s crying for a stretch! Now here’s the question: when I do the pistol I can do it with my right foot but not with my left. Ok, on the right side it’s not going smooth but I should think that this side will be worse off than left. Or I’m a wrong? Appreciate the help!

You should be able to perform skills well on both sides unless you have experienced an injury, trauma, or something else that would impact one side and not the other. Some single sided sport athletes do additional work with the side not involved in the sport to even things out.
Have you identified the cause of the inversion in your right foot?
Could it original at your hip?
This will help to address the situation.
Have you address the right ankle at all?
