For me, too small of a grip can create additional wrist problems. I've got a chronically bad wrist that I have to tape before every workout. If I play with a small grip, I'm prone to more wrist action, which creates problems. I try to play with a larger grip, and thereby not hit as "whippy" with wrist snap. But I also agree that racket stiffness, and string stiffness, are at least as big an issue, if not more so. For me it is all a balancing act.... I'm using a frame that is not very stiff, and stringing with hybrid poly / multi or gut, to still get the poly spin, but soften the frame with the crosses.
