Question Linetskaya: can she hold on?

She's up a break in the 3rd against Sharapova -- I don't know much about Linetskaya; will her nerves hold up? I'm always on the lookout for mentally tough players ... but this would be a HUGE upset, so I wonder if she will falter.

Well Sharapova just broke back. Linetskaya's a great player and will have a great career, but I think Sharapova pulls this out!

Shows how much playing in a slam can affect any players nerves. I seen her playing last week, but never entered my head she could beat Maria.

I think she will, too. But I was kind of expecting a 6-1 third set. Nice to see Evgenia still fighting.

yeah, so did I, but Linetskaya is obviously battling really hard! She will be top 20 soon!

Yeah I see Maria winning it either 6-3 or 6-4 in the third. Nice that Linetskaya took a set off though.

Really, don't even look at me...

Looks like she will succumb to nerves. It was 3-1 now its 3-4, and she had game points in the last two games
