What’s the difference between these backswings on the forehand…?

alvin480 Asked: What’s the difference between these backswings on the forehand…?

I'm wondering why do some tennis players have backswings with the racket facing straight up into the sky, the way Federer does it, while others take the racket back with the racket being horizontal, like the way Roddick does it…

Is there a reason for these differences? Any advantage one has over the other?
