Anyway I use a 4 1/2 grip...and use a wrap grip over the leather of my Kneissl...seems the overgrips cannot adhere to this slippery leather so I bought a replacement grip and just stuck it on top of the leather....I think I made the grip too big and this affected my wrist, is this possible? I feel ok with the grip size and when younger used a 4 5/8.

What should I do when resting this wrist issue?
Snap, crackle, pop okay is for Rice Krispies.

But your wrist should not be popping.

Stop playing tennis.

Make an appointment to see a "hand specialist" - a hand specialist takes care of problems that include the wrist. If possible, check with your coach, primary care doctor, or even a web site to see if the hand specialist deals with a lot of sports injuries.
