Imagine an overhead view, you are at the baseline practicing your open stance forehand, with your hips parallel to the net.
Power will come from the twisting of your torso, such that when you turn your shoulders to wind-up you are creating (from this same overhead view) an “X.”
Golfers work to create just such an Xfactor and the tension from the coiling of the torso and shoulders away from the hips creates a spring like effect where the turn into the ball occurs with more force.
