First aid kit (w/ ankle brace): It's always good to have some essentials in your bag - athletic tape pre-wrap Neosporin (or some other anti-septic cream) Ibuprofen and maybe even a pair of nail clippers. Everyone might be a little different in what else they want to bring to the court but those essentials will cover almost anything.
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.
Racquets (2-4): You obviously aren't getting too far in a match without these. However many people DON'T bring back up racquets in case something happens to the first one out of the bag. Your strings could break the racquet could slip out of your hand and crack your grip could get worn and slippery...if any of these things happen you should always have another racquet to pull out of the bag.
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.
