I saw your videos about forehand topspin and I want to make sure that I understand you correctly. So the question concerns the elbow when it comes to the start position. So now I try to start my forehand topspin with the elbow slightly more straight than closed and during the contact I usually close it a bit more and add some wrist which is bend slightly more backwards on contact. I experimented and noticed that when I start with my elbow slightly more straight it gives me more flexibility and shots are of higher quality as well. Am I right?
If you start with your arm more straight and bend your elbow through the stroke, you will be able to gain more power as well.
It sounds like you are on the right track. If you are finding that your shots are better quality then I think that is the answer.
