Does your type of grip effect the amount of wrist pain you will experience while playing tennis assuming you and your friend are of equal strength and are using the same exact racquet. I know that this situation is not possible but it would make sense to me that the amount of wrist pain you experience while playing tennis does relate to your grip. This is my theory...

Grips from most comfortable to least comfortable...
1. Eastern.
2. Semi-Western.
3. Continental.
4. Western.

there are number of different factors but regarding just grips,
full western is bad for ulnar part of the wrist.
I change grip to more eastern when my ulnar inflames too much.

Yeah, that's how I see it when using a modern FH stroke. I may even put continental fourth when swinging across the body. If you're using a more classical stroke, then I think both Eastern and Continental are the more stable grips.

I would say Hawaiian is the worst:p I can't even believe that was/is actually used...
