Default Return grip

Hi all,

I am asking for help from fellow double-handed backhand players out there. I am wondering if I should grip the racquet with my forehand grip (with my left hand gripping the top like I would usually do on a backhand), or if I should grip the racquet with my double handed backhand grip(continental on right hand). If I grip the racquet with my backhand grip, I have to switch my right hand from a continental grip to a semi-western grip. And if I grip with my forehand grip, I have to switch from semi-western to continental. Which one is the easier to execute? I am wondering because I have seen great players who return with different grips. If possible please dont leave a reply such as "do what youre comfortable doing" because if I do what Im comfortable with and its bad, then I'll be stuck with bad form for a long time And if you can list the pros and cons of both grips that would be great.

Thanks in advance, and if you need clarification on the description just let me know and I'll try my best to explain what I mean.
