Fed/Nadal may be great models for people who have the time, frequent access to a ball machine, and who can put off the need to play well for many months (years?).

But for many people who are time/resource constrained, or who don't want to be out of competitive action for long, Del Potro's forehand is the most accessible straight-arm forehand.

It may actually be easier to learn than the standard, double-bend modern forehand.

And, as I said before, it offers the option of transitioning to a pronated takeback.
Bevel, why would Del Potro be a good model? I actually think too many club players construct there backswing in a similar fashion to him.
