Head size is more than just about the extra square inches which one may or may not be able to see with the naked eye. The few extra square inches have a lot of impact on string bed vibrations and transfer more energy to the ball (which may or may not be good for you). Also, for modern closed-face topspin with a Western grip, the ball is often hit close to the lowest part of the (horizontally-aligned) frame and those extra square inches make a huge difference. It would be impossible for Nadal to hit his topspin with a 90 sq inch head.
