As one's grip becomes more western, the more supinated the arm becomes at the bottom of the forward swing (aka the slot). It's a bigger strain to straighten out a supinated arm than a neutral or pronated arm, so I guess the natural tendency for those with grips tending to western is to use a bent arm. Obviously, this is not a hard and fast rule, and there are players who behave differently (you know who they are).
