To stop rolling over FH, try visualize the racket head hitting thru 3 balls. The racket head will be moving up, thru and across in a glancing blow, but it still helps to visualize 3 balls and hit thru them. It is not a linear straight thru 3 balls but rather drive up, thru and across but hold the line thru 3 balls. The wrist is passive in the contact zone and should be relaxed but in a fairly consistent position - no tricks with the wrist. The WW follow-thru should not start until after you have hit thru the contact zone - just let your arm extend as you core (hips, shoulders) rotate and when you reach full extension on the rotation, your can let the forearm roll into a WW follow-thru. Ball is long gone before any WW or roll of forearm.
