Where do you want to toss the ball for different serves?
I understand for a topsin serve straight up, so the ball would land on your head

How about flat, spin etc? If i recall i see pros tossing it behind their head on tv.

Why don't you give it a try then? You watch other people, hopefully those that have a good results and you try it out for yourself.

You toss will be different as your stokes won't be the same.

Tennis is all about Observation, Aplication, Correction, Observation, ect

Alright, the pros are trying to disguise their serve, so they toss to the same place for every serve. I don't advise that at a level where you don't know where to place the toss.

For a quick reference, I can't try to pretend I know more than you'd learn from Operation Double's article (http://www.operationdoubles.com/spinningserves.htm) on spin serves and the toss placement.
