Also, if you face a really slow, or short second serve, a conti grip allows you to hit an approach shot with backspin and some sidespin, to allow you time to approach service line position to knock off his impending pass attempt or lob.
Since you're now returning from NML, a normal groundies is hard to control it's depth, so you hit long a lot. A conti grip gives you underspin, which has been proven to be the best depth control.
