Maybe that is why I ended up setting up with forehand grips?
What do you mean "maybe"? It's a fact that we hit overwhelmingly more FH than any other stroke. You are blind if you don't see pros positioning themselve to allow them to do that, and if you're a little better with footwork you'll run around your bh and pound a slow shot.
