Keeping the left hand on the racquet longer and bending and leading with the elbow may help...or it may not. As your hands separate and you step into teh backswing be careful not to allow your elbow to supinate, which which will rotate your forearm ever so slightly skyward. RAther, pronate (rotate your thumb downward) your elbow throughout backswing.
