However, the difference between those different tosses is quite a bit less for many elite servers than for non-elite tennis players.
I'm advocating keeping the position of the toss the same while varying how far you throw it into the court. So, yes different toss positions, but because you're only varying how far you throw it into the court it's essentially impossible to read from where the returner is standing.
