I don't necessarily have a lot of upper body strength (although I have a very strong grip), think Davydenko...

I used a set of dumbells from 15 - 35 pounds. I used the higher weights for wrist curls, 2 - 4 sets of 10 - 12 reps (to failure). And the medium weights same sets and reps for regular curls. I did it every other night for about 1 1/2 - 2 weeks. That is when I noticed my arm pain (when not playing) was gone.

I used racquet switching and string switching (no change in tension, I string kind of high at 60#s) to get the arm pain to go away when playing.
Ah, yes, I remember now. the heavy weight for wrist curls... Are you confident doing this weight routine helped your TE, or is it possible it just coincidentally got better?
