Shahar Peer has reached the third round of the French Open after coming from a set down to beat American qualifier Bethanie Mattek.

Seeded 18 at Roland Garros, Peer made a sluggish start, going down 6-3 in the opener.

The Israeli powered back to win the next two sets for the loss of one game, breaking Mattekā€™s serve seven times.

Tougher opposition is expected in the next round with Peer facing 13th seed Marion Bartoli or Olivia Sanchez
