The professional modern stance
The open stance is the most efficient for tennis forehands and two-handed backhands.
It could also be called the natural stance, or power stance.
Why? Because it is the easiest and most natural way for anyone to hit with.
It avoids undue stress and torque in lower back and knees. The body gets anchored on the outside foot, while the inside foot lifts off the ground, rather than torquing stuck to the ground, and allows the player to apply the power of a natural turn to the stroke.
