Peer on slippery slope

    Shahar Peer goes into the Australian Open in serious danger of dropping out of the world’s top 100.

    Two years ago, Peer came to Melbourne on the cusp of the top 10, but the Israeli, currently ranked 73, has made a disastrous start to the new season following back-to-back defeats against lower-ranked rivals.

    She lost to Greta Arn (113) of Hungary in straight sets in the first round of the Sydney Open qualifiers this week. This followed a first-round defeat against Elina Svitlona (131) at the Chennai Open in India.

    Davis Cup star Dudi Sela, ranked 109, will need to qualify for the Australian Open alongside Amir Weintraub and Julia Glushko.

    Sela and Weintraub remain on course to reach the main draw. Sela must beat Michael Berrer (135) in the third and final round qualifying round, while Weintraub faces Diego Sebastian Schwartzman (179) of Argentina.
