But keeping the arm and wrist relaxed is a must. Once you'll relax and learn to throw the racket behind torso rotation the racket will naturally wrap around you On shoulder side or above it depending on your technique and type of shot.
I think it's worth getting this part down - it will let you relax and enjoy tennis more.
