Rafa's got a brand new bag, Lindsay Davenport is restless and Laura Robson has a Wilson Phillips-related crisis. Here's the best of the week from the tennis Twitterverse.

Tweet of the Week: Rafael Nadal debuted a new tennis bag (on account of forgetting his regular one). It has wheels ... and its own Twitter account.
