Yeah, definitely. Forehand groundstrokes.
I was about to give up the Eastern completely (even though I'm very successful with it in other parts of my game)... until a very nice guy (more experienced player) told me the proper way to generate topspin with an Eastern forehand using a stretch-shortening cycle.
I think I shanked balls for a month while I learned it. But man... what a difference now.
