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.
Condensing the team competition to a single week is arguably one of the best ways to help put it back in the spotlight as well. As noted, Davis Cup tends to get lost in a crowded tennis calendar, with the focus spread to all corners the globe at various junctures in the season. By assigning it a single week, at a single venue where all the teams will compete, all the attention is directed to that one place in time. As it can travel to different host cities, it also presents an opportunity to bring that magnified focus to areas of the world that field Davis Cup Teams that might not be able to wrangle that level of attention on their own.
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.
