Players and racquet choice

What is the difference between a large racquet head size vs a smaller one? I noticed Roger plays with a Wilson nCode nSix-One Tour 90 and its head size is 90 sq. inches. Nadal uses the Babolat AeroPro Drive which has a head size of 100 sq. inches. Is there a huge difference between those racquet head sizes? I play with one with 112 sq. inch oversize.... but i noticed a lot of the top players play with much smaller racquets, thoughts?

You get more control with smaller head sizes.

But a big one has less requirements for technique and even many less perfect shots will land in. Also you'll get more power.

Re: Players and racquet choice

i have a babolat pure drive 100sq. it works well with it...if i were a better player
but it's really up to you what you choose... you cant say the larger raquet is better or worse or the other way round.
