    Probably books on how to help with the mental side of the game. I could definately see him having "winning ugly" and "the inner game of tennis" in there lol

    also, tissues if he is going against Raonic lol

    Brilliant thread idea.

    I imagine business cards from Tecnifibre, Yonex, and Dunlop reps. Just in case he feels froggy one day and decides to bail on his contract. For that matter, his lawyer's business card.

    And another vat of pomade.

    the way he's playing he might as well switch to a T2000. At least that way he can look cool losing.

    It's so repetitive and often really sort of stupid, but I love "Bag Check." Sometimes the players actually have some interesting things, but often it's just the stuff you'd expect. I find it hilarious that every player starts with their racquets. Of course, that's the main reason for the bag in the first place, but it always comes across as dryly funny because it's so expected and they say it so earnestly like it's some revelation that they're carrying around rackets in their bag.

    I also like that they have a good mix of players, not always stars or the highest ranked players.

    Index cards with the following Quotes:

    "I bring the Pain...all the way from Spain"

    "They are just Paint Jobs, just paint jobs"

    "Raonic Fans hate me cuz they aint me"

    Reading this over and over again while listening to his iPod which plays "I Feel Pretty" in a nonstop loop.

    Definitely every hair care product known, and maybe a copy of Vogue or GQ magazine.
