    I am not sure if this is the right section to post, but my wrist is starting to hurt while I play. I use a Wilson Hammer that is light weight (under 10oz) but has a high swing weight (347). Also I use a grip that measures one size too small, as in my hand measures to be a 3 but I use a 1 built up to a 2. I think my strokes are fine, but some can get a little 'wristy'. Should I get a new racquet that has a lower swing weight, or should I build up my grip, or is it something else? Any comments appreciated. Thank you.

    Try getting a less head heavy racquet with a correctly sized grip and hitting with less wrist.

    Hitting with less wrist and build up your grip, also your racket should be grip heavy. Let a teaching pro review your technique.

    The Wilson Hammer is the culprit, and can be particularly nasty.
