Note how racket in the BS points to 7 and then to 4 o'clock ...this is happens without deliberate action ..it is a by product of acceleration with shoulder.

lead arm is initially straight at set up to give a wider arc to swing (more power)...it can bend as you swing into oncoming ball ..but do NOT bend it at elbow from the get-go
