It's because Rafa doesn't always have a straight arm. The straight arm only happens when he has perfect positioning on the ball, often times you'll see him bend the arm if he's jammed a little bit. His motion in the takeback and forward swing transition are more similar to Rafa than Roddick, despite having a bend.
