The first forehand is "inside-in", meaning you ran around your backhand, then went to the player's deuce court. I think V is correct on a certain sense you are then limited to how much you can come around on the flat plane in order to hit hard. So you lagged the racquet back and hit through with a high follow through.

Notice the second forehand is "outside-in", or the standard crosscourt, you ran to your forehand side, then went to the player's deuce court. This would be the forehand you could hit harder, because you now can come completely through the flat plane (30-35 degrees) and rotate all the way through with the hip , which you do. So your forehand is noticeably "harder". You have more hip and shoulder rotation into the ball, where your toes point back out to the left.

Still, you don't use a Western grip, so the whole time in your windup, there is no U turning of the racquet face. Your racquet face either face the ball, or face to the ground at the back end of the backswing. So you hit predominately flat with a little bit of roll or sculpt when you lay the racquet in the lag. So you have some spin but not a ton, like a Western gripper.

hey free willy, what is this? inside inside stuff... are we discussing paul wardlaw directionals---because you're the second person to say this to me.  maybe i'm old?  but we used to call a shot hit from the backhand side of the court to the backhand side with a forehand an inside out, and I know why because we come inside our hip and move our hand out
