I used to play with women college players and still play with a lot of women, so here are some unusual things in my big bag some of you studs might want to carry to accommodate the fairer sex:
1. Ponytail holders and barrets
2. Female "napkins", some female athletes still need them
3. A baseball hat (clean)
4. Fingernail clippers (also to cut strings on racquet)
5. Party hats...expiration date 6/98!!!!
6. Emery board

Geezermeister,

this is (I'm serious) an old mother's (football) cure for whenever you feel a hint of cramps coming on--before they come full blown. Drink a small glass (5-6 oz.) of pickle brine. I'm serious. Pickle brine from pickles that DO NOT have sugar (e.g. "bread & butter" type pickles) and pickles that you'd find in the refrigerator section of the store (e.g. Vlassic). The brine contains not only the salt that you need but chloride as well. If you can stomach it, drinking it ... and giving it 15 minutes to get into your system will -- imho -- stave off cramps. There are some who'll say it's too sodium-rich, but it has worked for me. That said, I know pickle brine is not convenient when you're "out there" in a venue that doesn't have any food concession (e.g. a club), but no harm in putting it in a thermos. I think it works. Myself, I don't carry a jar of pickles in my tennis bag--least people would think I'm one of those pregnant-craving types. :-)

Thanks. I've heard about pickle juice before, but I've never had the stones to try it. I think I'd prefer the cramps!

This is the reason why they invented gatorade :)

Haaaa, 357 for tennis, where? Amid gangland violence?

My bag:
6 cans of balls, five sticks, four condoms, three nalgenes, two bottles of wine and a change of clothes.

Kidding. I'm married now.

That was just a play on the legendary line by Francis X. Shields years ago when asked how he managed to pack for such long tennis trips. Besides his tennis gear, he packed a pair of pajamas and a fifth of whiskey.

What's really in my bag?
3 cans of Dunlops, four frames, 5 wristbands, one pair of flipflops, a dwindling reel of Wilson Pro Overgrips, two Pacific hats, some cash, a pen and pad, two nalgenes, two pairs of socks and underwear, two Diadora tees and shorts. And one photo of my family, which helps me stop playing when it's time to get home for dinner/bath/bedtime reading.
