Another rule change designed to the improve the sport concerns the pre-match warm-ups. Administrators and pundits alike have been searching for ways to speed up the sport and they have a logical place to shave off some time when it comes to the warm-ups. Players will now be expected to meet at the net in a more timely fashion and adhere to the chair umpire's command when “time” is called or face a hefty financial penalty. The match is the main event after all so if any unnecessary dillydallying can be cut so much the better.
Towel: A towel is always good to have in your bag. It helps with sweat management but there's endless other uses for it as well. What if you need to stretch out after your match on a hot court or a grassy lawn? What if you slip and fall on the clay and need to wipe yourself off? I don't think I need to explain any furtherÉcarry a towel with you in your tennis bag!
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.
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.
