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.

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 :(

Not over my Marsha! Hopefully this will wake Maria up. Seems like Justine and Maria need these wake up calls and Lindsay.. Kim, Venus, Petrova, Kuzy rolling. The favorites need to get it together. Marsha will be ok. Skya is putting up a good effort but Marsha is available to hold her serve with more ferver.

Shit Marsha...4all, cant believe she got broken. Now I am getting scared. And James Blake has blown a 2 break lead in the second set. Andre is hurting. This is Killing me!

Maria won 6-4 in the third.

Having said that, she'll be lucky to get to the quarterfinals and if she does and Justine is waiting for her, she'll lose. I think Kuznetsova will be able to beat her.

Ah, well. Still a good effort from Evgenia.

She doesn't really have a tough road to the QF, Dechy could be trouble, but she hasn't really been playing well.

I hope Evgenia will realize from this close match that she can compete with these top players. The next time she is in this situation, maybe she will have the confidence to charge ahead to the finish line. It's hard for most rising players to burst through in their first fantastic Slam opportunity against one of the top guns. Even champions like Monica, Justine, even Steffi -- it takes a while for it to sink into their heads that they really belong there and can win these matches.

Best of luck to Evgenia for the rest of the season. :)

I was thinking about the Russian who beat Paola today. She could meet her in the third round.
