Here, we see a longer windup in that your arm winds around straight with no elbow bend, then bends and goes up. This is what Sampras and Fish does, but they get the snap up like a whip. Here, you are doing it at a more leisurely speed.

It is real easy to not get the whip or the racquet up in time with the Sampras method. Especially, if the racquet is leaded up too much. lol Trust me, I know, experimenting with this over the years. This is why I like Becker's windup better, the elbow gets bent early on and into a high trophy.

I couldn't figure it out - it looks like a very nice service motion to me.  I know mine go long when I don't snap my wrist enough, but it is hard to see whether that is the case in your strokes Pete.
