Items falling off player and onto court

(1/1)

Tennis4you:
What is the official rule for stuff like hats, balls (tennis balls of course), etc. falling out of pocket and onto the court during play?  Say I am playing Jim D and it is windy that day.  His hat has blown off 3 times in the middle of the match and interrupts play.  How does one handle that in a USTA match where there are no refs?

monstertruck:
Walk over, take his hat, and give it 'The Rafa' (rub it on your butt).

Tennis4you:
LOL, "The Rafa"...

monstertruck:
An alternative would be to take the hat and do 'The Rogi' and put it in your manbag courtside.
