Thank you for your response!
You really understand my question
I was thinking along the same lines.
Tried both methods and #1 was really painful, not only did I hitch but lost power and speed and consistency on my serve
Sometime I got lucky and hit the corners with velocity but generally I lack consistency.
though there are some really great servers who have a long backswing in their serve who look like they toss the ball and then wait ? In the trophy position serves really well that way But it's not for me.
