Use whatever works for you. No sweat!

Backwards hat.

If I'm really sweating, I'll wear a Halo headband to direct the sweat away from my eyes. I use wristbands and a towel between points and games. By the end of a match my clothing is mostly saturated as are my socks and shoes.

bandana. wide wristbands. I change dri-fit shirts just about every set. At court changeovers, I towel off legs and arms. I recently bought some prince Hand Dry stuff at the tennis shop and it helps keep palms dry

I find the only sweat that is problematic is sweat on my hands/grip. I combat this via wristbands, wiping my hands on my shirt, and blowing on my hands.

thanks. Yea my tshirt gets saturated totally and cant keep stinging sweat out of my eyes. Kinda annoying.

guess i'll start with a towel. bought 3 sports towels.

headbands/wristbands remind me of the 1970s, lol. but i guess they're effective.

backwards hat - good idea.

dri-wick t-shirts are neat but i've got a ton of old t-shirts i can play in. I'd need at least 5 t-shirts and dri-wick stuff is still pretty pricey.

I wear a sweatband under my hat, so getting sweat in my eyes is never a problem. I just towel off my hands on change overs to try and save my grips from taking a massive beating. And yes, if you've seen my videos, you know I always have my hat on backwards. I can't wear it forwards and play for some reason; it's weird.

Nike Featherlite cap. Wrist band. Tournagrip. Hand towel in my waistband and bigger towel on changovers. Wicking shirt. Bathing suit for shorts. Prince grip enhancer.

Is this for real? Come on!

I wear an all in one sweat absorbing suit, and afterwards I take it off and wring it real hard to get every drop of sweat out, into a beaker, and then use it to water my plants.

They grow really well.

Towel off often. Bring lots of wrist bands to use so you can keep your hands dry.

"Don't forget to bring a towel. You wanna get high?"

South Park fans will get that.
