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.
Tennis balls: Be a good hitting partner and always keep some tennis balls in your bag. You don't want to be that guy or girl that depends on the other person to bring them to the courts. Also they are very handy to have in case you have the opportunity to warm up at a tournament.
Advances in materials equipment conditioning and training have increased the pace of today’s game. Players look for any edge over their opponents: every gram counts. Bringing lightness to tennis footwear presents a unique challenge. Players not only need speed but just as importantly they also need support.
Last year the inaugural Laver Cup which pitted Team Europe against Team World generated plenty of buzz. The vast majority of it was positive and the event was deemed an immediate and overwhelming success. Not surprisingly many found it impossible not to compare it to the other team competition in men's tennis the Davis Cup and suffice it to say it was not a favorable comparison where the more historic competition was concerned. Whether or not that was the catalyst for change folks may never know but it was music to the ears when earlier this week International Tennis Federation President David Haggerty announced that the ITF was on the verge of making some much-needed adjustments to Davis Cup.
