What is with Hantuchova's head twitch?

When she is serving, she throws the ball up and her head almost rests against her arm and then she pushes her head up. I don't know how to explain well but it does look very weird. Why does she do it though?

Just look for it when she is serving

Oh and she complained to the umpire about the shoes squeaking

Head twitch - Guess it's one of those things a player does to keep consistency.

Consistent motions is what the game is all about.

Whatever she's doing it's working just fine.
