I realize if you are satisfied with your Fh, there is little reason to push for more.
I'm not even sure if I disagree with you.
I certainly do hit "across". I just don't know if across means active use of the arm to pull across or letting the rotational nature of the stroke carry the racket across.
I'm also against trying to extend the arm through the ball as this means disconnection from Rotation.
