I am not talking about timing of big and small head size but when they were end of career they felt bigger head size would have helped.

They realized it after playing on senior tour with poly & bigger head. Sampras mentioned in the interview (I am not going to dig the reference). Again not many up coming pro use 90 head size for reason.
