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.
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.
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.
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.
