Default Forehand followthrough and elbow problems...

I read in various places that the forehand followthrough can be one of the causes (albeit unlikely) for tennis elbow.

I was wondering how this happens. I don't mean the science of it, but the actual follow through that can lead to this (extending the arm too much, not extending enough, arm surrounding your neck like a scarf, not even touching your shoulder, etc).

My teacher says my follow through has no problems, nor my forehand has any noticable issues, but I still have elbow problems after long forehand practises. But then again, I don't trust his oppinion too much as he is capable of wasting one hours practise telling us to warm up and spend one hour talking to girls (not kidding).


Thanks
Bruno
