Yes, I see what you are talking about. But Jeff actually has the racket face pronate through the ball and away from his body, just as the other guy does, but when he then lets the racket drop, he turns the face back toward his body.
Watch it again. The motions in the two videos are basically the same until the very last part when the server is relaxing.
