We need statistics.
I've seen a lot of highlights and it still isn't clear to me that the majority hit the majority of their forehands in the air. Most recently I watched highlights of the Murray/Dimitrov match in Australia. Seems that most shots were hit with a foot on the ground. Just as many hops seem to be to shift the feet into position (especially on wide balls) as there were to kill the ball.
In any case, I'm not against jumping into the ball. Just know that it requires a lot of energy.
