Default How does grip size affect your shots?

Hey,

When I was a tennis n00b, I thought that grip size was something like clothes--you get something that fits. But I know that with tennis, going smaller can mean certain things for your shots, as is going bigger. What are the changes with all the shots when you go smaller or bigger? This is what I've heard:

smaller:
-more "whippy" motion, ideal for spins
-less stability for flat shots and volleys

...and bigger is the opposite of those things.

Is there anything else I'm missing?


Thanks,
Kris
