Tennis Elbow is known as an 'Overuse Injury' in most cases. People usually end up using way to much shoulder and wrist action while playing the game, and not enough rotational movement. If this is an ailment that is bothering you, probably avoid just flexing and extending the wrist. Yes, rest the elbow, but work on your rotational movement more importantly. If rotational movement (abdominal rotation) is not worked on, then the injury will only continue to be present. By training your body to rotate (especially when playing tennis) the elbow pain should improve, for now you will not just be hitting the ball with your arm, but with the rotational forces in your torso as well.
