This pretty much happened every match prior to this year, the most famous example being during the Clijsters match at the US Open.

Vera's mental state was always going to be what held her back, and it's no coincidence that her new, calm manner accompanied a rise from 50 to 15.

I'm pretty sure she cracked today because she was having trouble with a player with whom she had a 2-0 H2H (on clay no less), and when things got tough, she lost it. That's how Vera would have reacted before this year, and, clearly, that's what happened today,

Vera would be up 40-0, then lose one point. She would flail about and smack her racket on the ground repeatedly,acting like she was down 0-6 0-5 0-40.
Typical east-bloc thing. That´s why I don´t believe all the hype about the russians taking over. These girls can´t stand stress or tight situations! Mentally they´re SO fragile....the best one may well be the one that didn´t grow up in Russia: Maria.
