You need to keep in mind that a straight arm forehand does not mean that you hit with a completely straight arm all the time. Think of it of a different ideal contact point. If you mess up the timing slightly, always adjust the bend in your arm to make it more comfortable. Even Fed does this at times, so should you.
Also i will care where i hit the ball and see how the feel changes when i hit the ball way fronter than i usually do.
