For me, the best analogy for a straight arm forehand is stone throwing ( or a handball - I used to play a long time ago).
I couldn't imagine someone could throw a stone with a bent arm. I couldn't hit a tennis ball with a bent arm in a million years ... only when I look at that is painful enough, looks like someone broke those people's arms and made them hold a racquet and hit tennis balls .... only because 99% of the pros are using it it doesn't make it natural at all ... all the strokes in tennis are straight arm at contact , why would be this so different?
