The reason the squash open stanced underspin forehand works is that it is underspun for slow ball speed, it stays low over the net to discourage the opponent from moving forwards, and you stop as you hit the ball, rather than run thru like a running forehand, which gives you better positioning to recover over the running forehand. Plus, an underspin from the forehand side is seldom hit, so it's harder for the opponent to attack. He's used to your topspin forehands.
If you just need the time, why not lob?
