I used to have a two handed backhand, until Lendl came along and showed me
the light. Anyway, 2 handers with an open stance use a very good shoulder
and trunk turn to get their power. Some pros today even use a one hander
with an open stance (usu. on returns).
Suffice to say, since days of yore pro players have always driven teaching
pros up the wall, when students imitate: don't bend their knees, don't use
closed stances, plant feet correctly, volleys and serves with weird grips,
"Don't trust me, test me"
