Agree. Though I'm a comptetitively low level player, I think I do have a fairly good classic serving motion. In looking again at my serves, I notice that even though I sometimes get into the waiter position, it's quite transitory, and on the upswing the racquet face is perpendicular to the plane of the court. This all happens very fast because I don't have a conventional modern serving style, but rather a very quick classic serving style.
