Yes, it is.
Maria gets louder and begins fist pumping more intensely and frequently if the match gets tight and she find herself with her back against the wall. Ana felt that way in most of her matches since '09. As her form declined her twirling went up. There's a clear correlation between the pressure she was under and her on-court behavior. Now that she's more relaxed again, so is her whole on court demeanor.
