contact a bit too late and cramped.
The lack of symmetry in the groundstrokes is the major flaw in old school tennis instruction which presumes symmetry. The 2hb increases symmetry to a point. But, the bottom line is that if you set up on your forehand the way you do on your backhand you will be swinging from the back shoulder which impairs your angular momentum, follow through, finish, balance and recovery.
