I play here in Florida and am constantly fighting to keep my hands dry during play. So far, I have been pretty successful using that Prince hand gel drying stuff and switching rackets. I have 2 questions: 1. Has anyone found an alternative that is similar to this Prince hand gel stuff that may be cheaper than the $9.99 I spend for each bottle? I was wondering if some type of deodorant would do the same. 2. In those late sets when I am drenched in sweat...is it against the rules for me to keep a bottle of that stuff in my pocket and use either between points or between games? Right now I re-apply between switchovers, but sometimes I would love to re-apply before my serve..between games. Not sure if I am allowed to have it either in my pocket or by the back/side fence with a towel I have brought out to the court. Thanks.
