..................................... There were many possibilities to cause the elbow problem. Before you pay attention to many advices, you should think about what you are doing, how you are doing, and why you are doing. You might find a solution.
You have an idea of what caused your problem. Have you taken videos of your serve?

Most people don't have cameras that do high speed video. You possibly could get some useful videos with a DSLR camera with 60 fps or even a Smartphone in bright sunlight. But at 30 fps you would have to repeat the same serve several times and assume that the serves are similar in order to catch the various parts of the stroke.

Other people have question some of your stroke techniques so maybe videos would show you some stressful stroke motions.
