You can encounter wrist pain due to strength deficiencies or overuse when you are working on topspin for groundstrokes or the snap during the serve.

So use the wrist extensor stretch after your training sessions to reduce the risk of wrist injuries, e.g. ganglion, and support the muscle recovery process so you can play again the following day.
