Israel’s top stars made winning starts at Wimbledon on Monday.
Shahar Peer was relieved to make a winning return following a six-week injury-enforced absence.
Her 6-2, 7-6 victory featured a dramatic second set comeback from 5-1 down.
She said: "I had my ups and downs but overall, kept myself together and found a way to win the match after a slow start."
She meets 10th seed Nadia Petrova in round two. She has yet to beat the Russian.
Dudi Sela maintained his winning ways with a hard fought 6-4, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3 win over Mexican Santiago Gonzalez.
