The kinetic chain of a 1hbh and a modern forehand are very different. The typical modern forehand is swung with the weight loaded on the back foot, whereas the typical 1hbh (and closed stance 2hbh) is hit off the front foot.

But there are some similarities between the backhand and the "classic" forehand (i.e., neutral stance, step-then-swing).
