Only with a forehand grip pancake serve can the face of the racket ever point up at the sky during the swing after trophy position.
Conti grip, the face is closed thru the whole backswing loop, then starts upwards with the EDGE of the rackethead leading, to open up just before ball contact, facing just above the reciever's head for a moment. But never facing above the server.
