I never seen that ... we signal every serve attempt so there is no need to let someone know what I plan to do should he miss his first serve.

Our signals ...

Open hand, I am going, so serve it down the T
Closed fist, I am staying ... feel free to go wide, but usually from the body out to the T

And my personal favorite

Middle finger ... serve into the body and if there is a weak return I am going to be aggressive.
