    I've never seen a player so emotional during a match, for me if Bartoli wins it's more due to Lisicki's meltdown. Bartoli's just handled the occasion perfectly

    They often are that's what annoys me about 3 sets, you only need the momentum with you for 4 or so game around the end of the first set and its over. With enough time I think Lisicki could get back in this, but she's going to run out of games if she doesn't hit back this game or the next she faces.

    I think they should bring back the 5 set final for the women's Grand Slams, like it used to be for the men's masters tournaments. Nerves seem to play a huge part in these three set finals precisely because whoever loses the first set is under so much pressure to get back in the match.

    This is painful viewing - Lisicki is playing like an amateur, barely able to get the ball into court.

    This is sad Lisicki's missing so many shots even I would be surprised to miss.

    Says a lot the crowd think this could well be the final game and the commentators are already building it up, on Lisicki's serve.

    Lisicki in this match reminds me of me in my last maths exam ... a really good player but crumbling under the pressure...

    Perhaps in dispair Lisicki has lifted the pressure of herself a bit.

    If Lisicki wins this service game and then breaks Bartoli again, she will win the whole match.

    Come on Sabine! Finally starting to play tennis.

    And Bartoli's not ugly, just average looking, not that it makes a difference.

    I'd say Lisicki was the one who choked in the first set and a half.

    She's finding something here. If Bartoli gets tight she can find a way back into this match. Serve seems to have started working now as well.
