2. Elements yes, but I like a greater amount of extension from the top hand on my ideal 2 hander, so that probably doesn't map across exactly like the typical double bend ATP forehand. However, GRF, hip rotation, drive position etc can all be practiced as a lefty forehand and incorporated into a righties 2 hander without question.
I think the women's 2 handers are generally more like the forehand as they tend to maintain the double bend structure in both arms for the duration of the shot so for a right hander it is like a lefty forehand.
per #2 above for your ideal 2 hander
Is a face of a racket tilted/closed slightly at a contact?
If yes how much (ballpark)?
See for example blog #7 Page 13 of blog.tennisspeed.com
(the picture is drawn for a orehand but the question remains valid)
