You normal groundie grips to return much slower second serves.
difficult to give good advice not knowing the OP s 1hbh, but I disagree about conti for blocking fast serves. conti is specifically for slice and when blocked with conti ball flies up. for uncontrollable blockage fly the ball and hope it lands in but for controlled blockage normal grip will have the racquet face angle that is more controllable into court without flying the ball up too much. it just need some practice to extend the arm toward the contact point with no backswing at all.
