It can be easily done with a semi-western grip without additional pronation and a straight arm at contact. Nalbandian also does that but he has a huge loop that might be hard to get used to.

But if you are a club player that only plays tennis for having fun with friends, you don't need so complex techniques. You just need to watch somebody that has a total continuous loop like del potro or hewitt and improve your timing.

For backhands, again go with nalbandian.
You can do that with a bent arm too

(this another simple yet modern FH similar to nole which I think is worth to emulate)
