It could well be a natural consequence of the pronation of the forearm. It is unnatural to pronate without bringing the wrist from laid back to neutral or slightly supinated at impact.
Djokovic hits pure flat FH without pronation. He is next to the net and can afford hitting the ball with no pronation at all.
