What she is doing is what you feel you see on the Sampras serve, but watch him
and notice how different he actually brings the racket up. See at 4 secs
into this how the motion back stops and starts to come up instead?

It is a slight illusion with Pete due to his very large turn away from the court.

My bigger concerns for her is that she does not have much turn away to load her
serve, along with how smoothly her racket tracks down and around to her left side.
Not enough of her swing energy is going up and over, leaving too much taking her
racket down and around.
