Your description of the pain location sounds like a problem I have suffered with recently. My research indicates it is probably what is referred to as "golfer's elbow." It is like "tennis elbow" in that it is a strain of the muscles and ligaments involving the elbow, but it is those that attach to the inner part of the lower elbow. Do a internet search on golfer's elbow and you will get a good explanation of the condition and how to overcome it. Like your description, I can hit ground strokes all day and not feel a thing - it is only when I serve. I started wearing a neoprene elbow brace and serving with less force. I also started concentrating on hitting through the serve and following through to my opposite knee on serve. It seems to help quite a bit and I have noticed less pain lately. Good luck.
