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.
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.
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.
Extra clothes/shoes (shirt socks jacket flip flops off-court shoes etc.): This goes in the ready for anything category. It's always good to have a spare shirt and extra pair of socks in case that match goes deep into the third set. To keep your muscles warm off-court keep a light jacket in your bag so you're not stuck stepping on the court cold and more susceptible to energy.
