My only difference is my backswing is not straight like that. I have a loop and i give that break not just before hitting the ball but dropping the racquet down.
Normally, the purpose of a loopy takeback is to get the racquet moving, and generate more racquet speed that way.
If you have a break in your loopy swing, that pretty much negates any benefit from that long loop.
At that point, a loopy takeback becomes just a waste of time. You would be better off with just a simple, straight takeback.
