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.
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.
Extra overgrips (if you use them): For players that like to use overgrips it's always good to keep a spare one or two in your bag just in case. A dirty or slippery grip can cost you during a key service game so be sure you can replace it if you need to.
Extra string: It happens. Strings break sometimes quicker than you might think. It's always good to keep an extra set or two (or maybe even a reel) of your favorite string that you can take to a local stringer to get your racquet re-strung when you're in a pinch.
