In brief: Unlikely.
More probable is that alcohol in wine causes temporary anesthesia of the sore joint, causing you to ignore pain and damage it further while under the influence.

With tennis elbow being pain transmitted through your nervous system its possible but no scientific correlation has been established to date.
