sometimes i just find myself holding the racquet really tight without knowing it since i get so sucked up into the game but most of the time i try to be relax.

Also, you can afford to make your grip a bit bigger, as this relieves the pressure on that problematic area.
Hope this helps

You should hold your racquet a bit loose in a relaxed manner. This is vital for power, finger power, as the fingers will generate some important 'back swing'-the source of the power-when you grip the handle for the stroke. From a relaxed and loose state to a griped state, a 'back swing' is generated where there was none before.

That's nearly a perfect grip for smashes This is the grip that Lee Jae Bok recommends, and I agree with him. There are problems though:
- This grip is only good for overhead forehands (smash, clear, drop). For other forehand shots, you need different grips.
- The grip looks slightly too small for you. I think you need one more layer of grip tape.
- Your fingers should be wrapped around the grip, not open. The thumb should be touching the grip with its pad, rather than with its side. Same goes for the index finger.
You're not really holding the racket comfortably in your fingers. Since when did you ever hold anything with straight fingers? Fingers are meant to wrap comfortably around whatever you're holding; you have three joints on each finger (two for the thumb), so use them
I think the reason that you are keeping your fingers straight, rather than naturally curling them around the handle, is that the grip is too small. Often in badminton we must look for indirect causes of a player's technical difficulty - because if you don't remove the indirect cause, your direct solution won't work.
With too small a grip, there isn't room for fingers to wrap comfortably around the handle - so you straighten them.

I agree with Gollum, your grip looks too small.
