If you can't do it, you can't. But, OlivierRochus can return JohnIsner's serve.

I think what Lee means is that you need to block it back with a volley motion. You are correct that you have allow a serve to hit the ground before you hit it.

Basically though you have two choices. Stand in and punch it back, or stand way back and take a cut at it. Even a shorter player that can get some good topspin on their first serve can make +100 mph serves kick up to your head as well.
