Many will remember the rash of disastrous late and first-round withdrawals that plagued the slams especially the back-to-back opening-round mid-match retirements that occurred on Wimbledon Centre Court. It certainly did not paint the sport in a great light particularly when it unfolded at one of the most famous venues in all of sports. Thankfully the Grand Slam Board has come up with two changes to help greatly reduce the chances of such an ugly scenario happening again.
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.
