I (righty) used to receive serve with my left hand ready for a BH/ Right hand ready for FH. I think this was from Agassi. As noted by others, it was pretty easy to do a grip change as I rotated my shoulders, when you can crank returns. However, I was getting jammed a lot on hard body serves, to which I was trying to hit blocking volleys (badly) with my forehand grip. Lefties, in particular, were eating me up with slicing body serves. So I switched to returning with my backhand grip (right-hand continental) to volley-block returns, when needed.
