Peer knocked out of Australian Open

    Shahar Peer has been knocked out of the Australian Open by the oldest player in the competition.

    The Israeli found the going tough in her second-round match against 42-year-old Kimiko Date Krumm of Japan.

    A 6-2, 7-5 victory saw Date Krummo become the oldest player to make a Grand Slam third round since 45-year-old Renee Richards in 1979.

    It ended another disappointing tournament for Peer who was eliminated from the Women's Doubles on Tuesday.

    Amir Weintraub failed to build on his first-round heroics when he was beaten in four sets against Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber in the Men's Singles. The Israeli produced a brave performance against the 17th seed before succumbing 6-2, 7-6, 6-4.

    Canada's Jesse Levine also bowed out after losing 6-2, 3-6, 6-7, 2-6 to 14th seed Gilles Simon of France.
