I do use Eastern grips, both forehand and backhand. This is why it is so hard to strike the moonballs, even with my forehand. If I can't take it on the rise, it becomes almost impossible to hit it back, unless making it a moonball.

My opponent actually smiles when he sees me returning with moonballs. I guess this is exactly the type of game he enjoys playing, and he will be able to dominate me with better and deeper moonballs.
