    It is my feeling that most elbow problems are due to one of three problems. Serve pronation without good follow thru, one handed backhand (with light racquet), and poor form on contenental forehand. Strength training is a must for good elbows, since it is really the upper forearm and it's connection to the Humerus at the medial epicondyle. Heavier racquets help more than they hurt, unless you don't have the strength and poor follow thru.

    Could be the racquet then, or trying a new racquet sometimes changes the way one hits with it. Trying for more to see what the new one will do. The LM Prestige is a rather flexable stick that is hl.

    Watsui,

    What types of strings are you using? This may impact the elbow pain as well.

    It could also be poor technique on FH regardless of grip. Stiff, light racquets, stiff strings, very tight strings can also hurt your arm...
