    Hey guys
    so I was playing today and my wrist was starting to hurt
    so i went home, put ice, then did wrist strengthening exercises
    but a peculiar thought came to mind as i did this
    since RHS can come from the natural wrist snap wouldn't flexibility of the wrist increase RHS
    but if you strengthen the wrist/ make it more muscular, wouldn't that inhibit flexibility?
    Any thoughts?

    You mean forearms? The wrist his no muscle, does it? Only tendons, ligaments, bone, and nerves.
    Gotta review your strokes here. Why do you need to be stronger to hit a wimpy tennis ball? Can't your racket do the hitting, while your body starts and guides it along it's swingpath?
    If your wrist is sore, it's the ligaments and tendons that are sore. Overstressed.
