No: Fingers will not swell as a direct result of tennis elbow. However if the pain on the elbow stops you from using your hand they may get stiff and swollen. So if you have tennis elbow make sure to keep all parts of your arm and hand moving.

Unlikely: Tennis elbow truly is a condition of the lateral elbow. If you are not moving the digits or apply a tennis elbow strap too tight, these could theoretically cause finger swelling. Try elevation and digital motion. If it does not improve, see a hand surgeon.
