I would disagree that wilson has a better grip than VIKING. Viking now offers their line of top-of-the-line platform tennis paddles with GAMMA GRIPS and are 100% better than before.
After getting a good massage on the elbow and H.E., then maybe you can get back on the courts with the Ignite.

So I would suggest a lesson or have a good player watch your strokes to make sure you are not overloading the elbow. And I would recommend exercises/stretches specifically for tennis elbow - do them daily and before and after playing. It has made a big difference for me. After playing, I take an ice cube and run it around the sore part of the elbow (the lateral epicondyle - little bony prominence on the outside of the elbow).
Not sure if the article's web link will show up on this message board - but this article has all the same exercises I paid my physical therapists dearly for, and they do help. Article is:
Keeping Tennis Elbow at Arm's Length: Simple, Effective Strengthening Exercises (THE PHYSICIAN AND SPORTSMEDICINE - VOL 24 - NO. 5 - MAY 96)

Best of luck.
