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.
Extra dampeners (if you use them): Once again this is for players that use vibration dampeners. If you make off-center contact they can come flying out pretty easily - it happens all the time. And those of you that have had that happen to you you know they can go bouncing off in any which way and you may not be able to find it. It's always good to have a spare one or two in the bag so you don't have to be worried about it if you can't find your lost or broken one.
All told the Grand Slam Board on paper at least got a lot right with these changes. It is sure to be an adjustment for all and much will also depend on how strictly some of these changes are enforced. If handled properly however these should make tennis more exciting and improve the image of tennis as a whole.
Tennis players make a LOT of money. The ones at the top make millions a year JUST from their on-court accomplishments alone (not to mention the mind-blowing figures of money thrown at them for sponsorship and adverts and so on). So should there not be a certain respect a certain decorum that acknowledges their position and their iconic status - something representative of their understanding how those they influence can mimic behavior that they are not only heroes but examples of how to live life? Tennis needs strong role models who lead the way. The players not at the top make a lot of money too. The ones outside the top 100 can make a living that way. Of course getting to 200 in the world is not easy as that means a player is in the best 200 in the world. Just do the math on the world population and surely it’s an impressive feat too. The point is if Roger Federer who smashed rackets as a teenager can stop for the most part (he does occasionally have a tantrum) if Nadal can never ever smash one because his coach stated when he was a child that if he ever did that they would be finished if those players can have the discipline and mental focus and not be violent and channel the frustration of some moments into improving their play in the following points is that not what should be trained encouraged and implemented on a much wider scale?
