This is interesting to me because 4 days ago after playing a match my grip was painful. It's in the tendon(s) in the back of my (fore)hand. Better now, but still not 100%.

I have big hands and usually put at least two wraps on my racquet handles. Now I'm wondering if that's what caused the problem. The other possibility is that I'm ~65, just got back into tennis after ~40 years, and have been playing a lot. At least today I can clench my right fist without any pain. Two days ago I couldn't do that.

I'm going to stick with the big grip for a while, until or unless somebody gives me a good reason not to.
