Sennoc no disrispect here, but if serve was only done by the hand then that would be true, but there are more axis and levers than that.
you know the drill, legs, hips, torso, shoulder elbow, bones of the forearm... this kinetic chan not only produces the necesary power but also the necesary alignment.

The most effective spin serve is done accelerating the raquet through the edge, the alignment can be done with the torso... the raquet moves through the edge in reference to the body, but the torso is moving and aligns the string bed in reference to the ball... its two separate things... pronation depending on hand position and grip can add spin or pace.
