Tendonitis is a pretty common complaint for the wrist, but your description
could fit bone, joint, tendon, ligament or muscle problems. That's a pretty
broad set of possibilities, and trying to diagnose and/or recommend any
"cures" given your description wouldn't be a real smart thing to do.
Since I don't believe there's a sports medicine book specifically for tennis
--although there certainly might be--you can either pick up a normal sports
medicine book (e.g., The Sports Medicine Book, Gabe Mirkin MD) and hunt around
in there, or have a sports-centric physician look at it.
Another thing to do is to get yourself some lessons. If it hurts, you're
not doing something right.
