it's not related to grip. it's position in set up and loose arm/wrist
But Fed goes straight arm, so an eastern with a straight arm forehand may be an exception of grip since any grip with a straight arm forehand still has full extension of the elbow away from the body. I could be more specific and just say it looks like the more bent/tucked in the elbow remains throughout the back swing, the less ssc there appears to be, is that more accurate? Or is that still too much of a classic stroke mindset?
