Well, I would advise the opposite of what you're saying here. The legs, trunk, and shoulders provide the power. They start the swing. The arms and the racquet whip around and the head of the racquet whips into the ball. The arms and wrist do some fine tuning as to exactly when the whip is cracked and exactly where the racquet head goes - that's why you keep your eye on the ball through impact - but the legs, trunk, and shoulders start the swing and provide the power.
