I think the upward throw bit is overrated advice.

It's great for people who have a problem with making their serve to linear (not getting their chest pointed up, shoulders sloped, etc.) For people that have a decent trophy pose, though, the upward throw visualization doesn't help a ton.

If you pronated on the serve exactly like someone who was throwing upwards, your racket face would be open and contact and send the ball way long.
