Here's a visual on what I was seeing wrong with the beta angle of a serve (using x and y axes) being applied to a forehand.

If that was a forehand ground stroke (not volley) and pronation was going to occur, it would be the same motion as pouring water like in this (kind of bizarre) picture

That's no good. toly, I can't imagine that's what you were meaning when you said a higher beta angle will produce more spin but less power
