                                                                  in Central Park on Monday as part of her

                                                                  By Susan Mullane, US PresswireSerena

                                                                  in Central Park on Monday as part of her
                                                                  post-championship tour.


                                                                  She fell to her back at full stretch, clasped
                                                                  her hands to her face, and hopped for joy
                                                                  several times on her way to shake hands
      at the net. A few minutes later she stopped in a corner where the baseline and sideline meet and
      intoned, "Oh my god!" multiple times in rapid succession.


      But Williams is no ingenue. She had just wrapped up a dominant summer with a 15th Grand Slam
      title that will share space on her trophy cabinet with singles and doubles championships at
      Wimbledon and the London Olympics.


      "I feel for me I've gotten much more appreciative, not that I didn't appreciate winning a Slam in
      2005, if I won one then, or 2007 or 2003," Williams said Monday, less than 24hours after her
      victory. "I feel I definitely appreciated those for sure. But I just feel there is way more appreciation
      because each one is going towards history now. It just feels so special. It just feels different."


      There were few signs of weariness after the usual post-championship celebration and next-
      morning media obligations as she sat with a few reporters in a Midtown Manhattan office building.


      Wearing a cream-colored Michael Kors dress and Christian Louboutin stilettos, she said she had
      been out on the town until about 3 a.m. performing karaoke.


      Her alarm buzzed at 5:15 a.m.for a round of television appearances -- Good Morning America, CBS
      This Morning and Live with Kelly and Michael -- plus a photo shoots in CentralPark and another
      with members of an early responding fire unit to the 9/11 disaster.


      "I actually ended up singing I will survive ... which I thought was a great story for me to sing that last
