Just wanted to share this: I have a High Sierra 29" Compass like this: http://www.amazon.com/High-Sierra-C...oor-recreation&ie=UTF8&qid=1318304417&sr=1-22 I have this bag and have used it to travel with tennis rackets. I went to Hong Kong last week and took 2 rackets in this bag, along with clothes/items I needed. The rackets (even extended length rackets), fit in either pocket, but in the main pocket they are better protected because of the bags semi-rigid frame. It of course varies by airline, but I found that if I take the small backpack off the outside of the main large bag, and don't put too much in it (meaning, don't stuff it full) so it can stay fairly flat, I can carry this bag on the airplane. It's the only way I have to fly with rackets that doesn't involve putting them in a huge suitcase that has to be checked. So, in a way, I think of it as a racket bag that is shaped like a normal bag and as comfortable as a hiking backpack.
