Does your tennis bag brand match your racquet brand?

Originally, they did match. Head racquets with a Head bag.

But I really liked the design and construction of the Yonex Pro Stand bag (it is very similar to the old style baseball / softball locker bags that I use) so I switched to it. My old Head bag is just used for storage at home.

Guess I’m the minority here. Playing Wilson BLX 2010 six one 95 frames with the BLX red/black/gold Federer bag. I think it just happens that I’ve always played Wilson frames and like Wilson bags. Im a tad bias when it comes to frame/ bag combos. I’ve always tried to purchase my bag around the same time I decide on a main frame. I tinker and try different frames but my main frame doesn’t change often so I don’t mind buying the bag at the same time as the frame. If i didn’t use Wilson bags I would use something from a clothing brand like Nike, or adidas since I wear the clothing.

Honestly finding a bag that suits your needs and preferences is much more important than matching brands. Designs vary greatly brand to brand and year to year. Finding the right size, features and even colors that you like is more important.

I put all my racquets (Babolat, Yonex, Wilson) into Babolat x12s, they are perfect for me, I hope they continue with the yearly Wimbledon editions in green or white because I don't like the PD and PA colors.

i now have multiple Wilson and Angell rackets in a Babolat 12 Wimbledon edition (white and gold). great bag, fits everything i ever needed (as well as my daughters' stuff when we go for a hit). as much as i liked the white and gold colours, it gets dirty very easily... lol the bottome (where it stands up right) is very dirty.

a green/white/gold edition for 2020 would be very nice... as much as the green colour is the main colour :-D

I never have matched the bag and racquet. Not interested in making it happen on purpose either. I buy the equipment I use by function over anything else. Bag must do whatever I need it to carry.
I used red Wilson bag for years. My family bought it for me. Used Volkl racquets. Needed a bigger inside area so I bought one that fit the stuff I carried, found a Dunlop bag on sale that did the trick. Switched over to Kneissl racquets and then over to Yonex racquets.

I’ve been using the Wilson Clash duffle style bag with a Clash, a few Blades and a Babolat PA in there. Bag is nice but I miss being able to put my bag on my back and have my hands free. I have an OCD disorder where the bag brand has to match the racket brand. I don’t know why, but there’s a sense of balance for me that way. I get grief from the pros at my club who make comments that if I switch a racket I will have to switch bags, too. Some guys think anything more than a racket sleeve is too showy and they feel more pressure to play well. They like to remain unassuming. Me, I like big roomy bags. I carry a bunch of stuff and I don’t need to carry a second bag if I go from work straight to a match, so I can change out of work clothes and into tennis clothes and keep everything (shoes, socks, etc) in one bag.

No. I use a babolat pure aero bag but a Wilson Clash. I used to play with the Pure Aero, hence the bag.
But I like it and do not wanna change. But if I get a chance to sell the babolat bag, I will switch because my OCD is driving me crazy.

But I also play in full Nike gear. Black and white. I cannot stand to play with let's say adidas wrist bands...my eye starts twitching. It even bothers me when my opponent has adidas shorts and nike shirt.
