That's called a topspin serve or kick serve. Balls flies high, dips into the service box, and jumps high after the bounce. Even can jump to the side in the case of a kick serve. Very reliable, not always easy to achieve, but once mastered it's very effective. It has high net clearance so no double fault in the net, dips to avoid making an error a foot long, and is difficult to handle by the returner even if it isn't fast because it bounces so high.
