    I play with a Western grip, and I like it because of topspin. To hit a flat shot do I have to switch to a SW grip before i take it. There are times when I see an opening to hit a winner, and I cant hit it because of our the spin.

    You do not have to switch to a SW to hit a flat drive with a western grip. Just hit through the ball. It is more difficult compared to a semi-western.

    You also don't need to use a western grip to hit with lots of topspin. You can hit with lots of topspin with even an eastern grip. But what adjustments you want to do is up to you.
