Question I reduced my grip size

I've used a 4 and 3/8 size grip for years. And then I heard somewhere that the pros are switching to smaller and smaller size grips for better ball control. So when my boyfriend bought me a new racket for Xmas (Head Microgel L4), I decided to go with a 4 and 1/2. It may be all in my mind but I feel that I can indeed control the ball better. Has anyone else experimented with this?

Well it isn't necessarily better ball control. Smaller grip allows for more racket head speed which can translate into more ball control if you use topspin. But yeah, smaller grips are the fad these days.
