no need to change your grip. federer hits eastern and has, by some measurements, the 2nd highest topspin on tour.

just hit with a more closed racquet face at contact. think 10-15 degrees. you might find that you have to swing forward faster, or adjust your stroke otherwise, but it will come through feel. hitting with a closed racquet face at impact gives you more topspin than hitting flat.

much easier than messing around with overly wristy movements.
