I noticed years back that Serena changed her traditional kisses to the crowds after she wins to...holding up the #1 sign.

The first time I noticed it was when she became #1, or was it right before? I'm not sure.

And then I noticed it in the latter of 2006 and especially at the AO 2007 Open.

Sure enough, she became #1 a year later and from then on.

Fast Forward to now, and I noticed her doing that during her runs at Stanford(ranked outside the top 100)http://tennis.topbuzz.com/tennis-pics/d/32985-2/Serena+Williams+raises+her+index+finger+after+a+vi ctory+at+Stanford+2011.JPG

and Toronto(ranked 80).

Is Serena the only one confident enough to hold up the #1 sign, even though she's not ranked #1...yet?

Will she make it to #1 again?

I was unaware you and Serena had devised your own sign language, kudos.

That goes without saying. It's not like you'd post in a thread about something you don't care about.

She seems less emphatic in this picture

Having said that, I don't think her #1 sign means she want the #1 ranking, she just wants people to think of her as the real #1, regarless of who the current #1 rank is

Miami 2007 against Sharapova was more like : "I just won 1 and 1..."

Will she make it to #1 again?No, nothing to do with ranking ambitions.

Serena's doing it in order to imply that she is the de facto № 1. Like all others who do it.

I'm not sure about what you said, but I'm sure about 2 things:


1. Interpreting her own sign language without consulting her and post that in a forum. She doesn't like that, so she signaled to stop.



2.Serena doesn't like anyone who shows up his belly button in an avatar as that is her own trademake, so she was mad. That finger is about ready to poke any belly button that is exposed.
