Look at the player's elbow position at about 0:06. His racket is pointing down toward the court, but his elbow is above his head, and his upper body is tilted to the left. That is what hitting up and out means. You don't have to aim to the sky, but you have to keep that elbow up, or you will get an overly flat serve.
