During a midsummer’s fortnight, it’s easy to get caught up in the history and tradition of Wimbledon. Thankfully it’s merely a warm-up for the Stateside’s answer to world-class tennis in no other than New York’s necessary evil (a.k.a. Queens) – the U.S. Open.

If you’re lucky enough to round out your summer calendar catching a match be it courtside or up in the promenade, take a Boy Scout’s word for it and be prepared with the essentials:

“Glowstick” by ORLY Nail Lacquer, $8.50 (http://www.orlybeauty.com)
Solution for: Girls who fantasize screaming “I’ll be the one with the optic yellow toenails” into their iPhones within earshot of Roger Federer.

Impress your date who so graciously chose you to accompany him to the Men’s semi-finals with this fun factoid: Tennis balls’ official color is “Optic Yellow,” the hue which appears best on the black and white television you rescued from your great-grandmother Horowitz’s estate sale.

Coppertone Sport Pro Series, SPF 30 & 50+, $9.99
Solution for: Aspiring ball girls volunteering at the 10-and-under courts on Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day.

Whether you’re hitting on concrete or clay, tennis is a sweaty game, especially in August. Protect your whites from unfortunate stains as well as your skin with this performance-grade sun block!

Shedrays® from ShedRain, $36-40, (http://www.shedrain.com)
Solution for: Dashing from the Womens’ Final Match to JFK in a flash monsoon faster than a Serena Williams power serve.

Futuristic and ingenious go hand-in-hand, as ShedRain’s specially-crafted umbrella serves as both a water repellent in spontaneous showers and a UPF 50+ to ace dangerous rays that may quickly ruin your day. For the charitably conscious, a percentage of each umbrella sold is donated to the Melanoma International Foundation to raise awareness and eliminate skin cancer.
