You're talking about tennisbags, aren't you?

They are stronger so they can break more racquets, so they need to bring more spares

Because men pack less than women. This enables them to carry 100% of their belongings with them on court, so that if they lose, they can go straight from the court to the airport.

They can change shirts, and they need to change more often coz they play at least three sets.

It's England - they has been doing this all the time so they won't change this.

Because men can't pack properly? ;-)

*Science without Humanity *Knowledge without Character

The men can change their clothes on the court. The women usually have their dresses in their lockers, which is where they go to change. Plus, the men prepare for best-of-five sets matches, so they have to carry more equipment than the girls.

Oh, and the bag has space in it left over. It's not like both bags are fully packed.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Men are smarter. 2 bags gives them the opportunity to ask twice as much money from the sponsor on it.

Bag 2:
cloth change - men go thru a minimum of 2 change of shirts
Big bottle of (enegery) fluid
Food ( easily digestible such as banana, apple, energry bar)
And maybe some banned substance

The men need their make-up bags. They don't just go out on the court looking like that, you know. And leaving the make-up bag in the locker room could lead to lip gloss theft. It's tough being a beautiful man. Look at Radek Stepanek. That handsome devil never ever leaves the house looking like shit.
