Default Advise me on my serve?

My coach made me watch some of his old favorite, Pete Sampras, and after watching him serve and volley, I want to serve like Pete. Now, I know people say not to imitate pro's. Sure, fine. But I don't suppose I necessarily want to imitate him, but see exactly what he is doing.
For instance, in this video of Pete:

To me the toss appears to behind him...at 12 o clock. How does one hit it with as much MPH and often times flat like Pete out of this toss?

Here is a link to a video of me serving:
I get about 105-110 MPH. I'd like to make it more of a weapon. Something I am more confident to come in and volley off of, which I like to do.

Fast forward to about 3:08 . Thanks!
