Well...for one thing, the more extreme stance didn't do it for me...so that won't work. I will need to work more on the shoulders as you say.
As for eventually ending around my body without hitting myself, I will have to work that out. Maybe I have to pronate less for this to be possible.
(there is a lot of momentum on my pronation which throws the racket out sideways away from the body, instead of around it)
You can try keeping your stance the same but turning your body a little more so that you uncoil into the serve.
