You're probably also propelled into court as you hit the serve, meaning that when you recover from your service action you'll be in the outer edges of no mans land. This could be what robs you of time to handle the return. Take two quick steps back directly after serving and split step. These quick steps should almost be part of your motion and should put you slightly behind the baseline.
