Nobody on the ATP tour hits a power forehand from a closed stance. They are all open, or maybe square. Closed stance forehands are for recreational players that are not athletic or young enough to do it a better way. A closed stance will also put your feet in an awkward postion to get to the next ball. If you are playing at a high level this matters plenty. So if you are an athletic player the last thing you want to do is switch from an open stance forehand to a closed one. It you want more power turn your shoulders and accelerate the racket a lot.
