I have an actual racquet bag and a sports bag.

In my racquet bag are 4 racquets, 2 tins of tennis balls (one for older balls to warm-up with and one unopened with new balls because you never know when you'll need them), 4 vibration dampeners (spares that aren't already on the racquets, so I have 9 dampeners in total), tissues (hooonk!), string savers (ping! ping! ping!), and 3 spare wraparound racquet grips.

In my sports bag are a skipping rope, my tracksuit (when not in use), a change of clothes (shorts and shirt and a change of undies), my car and house keys (no touching!), my wallet (step away from the sports bag!), my sunglasses (when not in use), my watch, a spare bag for dirty clothes, a towel, a re-sealable bag for my spare neck beads and leather string (don't ask, voodoo ritual ;)), a calendar, a fixtures book (so I know where I'm playing), my address book (with my prized photo of Roger Federer and myself inside) and a cooler bag to store cold drinks. Sometimes, I'll also carry a lunch box if I decide to bring any fruit, muesli bars, or energy bars.
