Default Double bend or straight arm forehand?

How do you hit?

Do you hit a double bend (i.e. elbow bent) or straight arm forehand (when swinging forward)? Have you been taught this, or did it just happen this way?

Coaches, do you teach a particular style?

Examples*:

Bent Elbow:
Murray...


Straight Arm:
Verdasco...



* Let me know if these photos are too big.
