Most likely the OP is falling off balance when hitting the serve and is not preparing for the ball to come back. If you block a fast flat serve back to the server, you can often force an error. The OP needs to practice on landing and then transitioning to a split step off of the serve. He also needs to be able to back up quickly to get a decent shot at the return.
Yep. You're right. You cannot compare the pace of a 101 MPH serve to the pace of a 100 MPH serve

You guys continue to discuss this guy's unsubstantiated claim of 100 MPH first serve return game issues. I will back off.
