All of the things he covers are good. But if he is going to say, "like Roger Federer", he must show the exact stance, takeback, and balance shifts. For instance, Federer does not start arms up together. He starts with both hands down low. Secondly, he does not stand with the back foot parallel to the baseline. Fed's back foot is angled, with the toe pointing towards the back right corner of the court. He also does not leap like a stride during the jump, say like Isner does. Instead, Fed has a distinct jackknife position where he looks like he is somewhat "seated" with both feet in the air. 

All the tips are good, but I believe Fed's serve is far more specialized than these basic tips. There are reasons why his serve is one of the most accurate serves of all times.
