Shahar Peer begins the 2011 season at the Brisbane International tournament on Sunday, looking a great bet to move into the top ten during January.
Having climbed from 30 in the WTA rankings to a career high of 13, the 24-year-old Israeli is set to scale new heights. She will overtake Elena Dementieva (9), who has officially retired, and Serena Williams (4), who is out due to injury, in the next few weeks. Justine Henin (12), who is only 50 points ahead of Peer, has pulled out of Brisbane to play the Hotman Cup
