Hat/Visor: A lot of tennis players say they don't like playing with hats, but I think you always have to keep a lightweight hat in your bag in case that summer sun just gets too hot and bright. This goes in the category of skin protection but it also has to do with performance. When the sun is getting in your eyes on your service toss or overheads from one side of the court, a hat can be a simple and easy solution to the problem. If you don't like hats, go with a visor! They are good to have just in case.
Another rule change designed to the improve the sport concerns the pre-match warm-ups. Administrators and pundits alike have been searching for ways to speed up the sport, and they have a logical place to shave off some time when it comes to the warm-ups. Players will now be expected to meet at the net in a more timely fashion and adhere to the chair umpire's command when “time” is called or face a hefty financial penalty. The match is the main event after all, so if any unnecessary dillydallying can be cut, so much the better.
