ISOMETRIC: Larger sweet spot. Developed over 30 years ago the ISOMETRIC design increases the sweet spot by 7%* Compared to a conventional round frame a square-shaped ISOMETRIC racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing intersecting main and cross strings.
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.
Ice pack: Icing down sore achy muscles and joints can greatly help your post-match recovery and prevent small injuries from becoming big. After a match. instead of having to worry about finding a bag to put ice in and figuring out how to keep it on you get an ice bag and wrap to store in your bag so it's easy for you. If you get into the habit of icing down minor injuries after you play you'll be amazed how much it helps recovery and keeping an ice pack and wrap in your bag just makes it easy and not a hassle.
