Default Tennis question

I dont watch tennis, but happened to be scrolling through channels when Federer and some other guy were about to start their match and when they took their racquets out, they both took them out of plastic bags

Just seemed weird when it looked like they were just bought or something, I'd think they would have custom racquets and would practice with them

Curious as why they were in those bags

They use the same frames each match but they have their racquets restrung prior to each match and once they are restrung they just put a plastic bag on it

The plastic serves two purposes. It's prevents the frames from getting scuffed up after they are strung and it prevents the strings from touching anything so they don't get knicked or broken while in the bag.

Some players also like to have different tensions so the stringer will put a different color rubber band on them so they know which is which.
