The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

SHA­HAR Peer won her sec­ond con­sec­u­tive WTA ti­tle af­ter beat­ing Akgul Aman­mu­radova 6-3 6-4 in the Tashkent Open.

Peer’s fifth ca­reer ti­tle saw her com­plete back-to-back tour­na­ments without drop­ping a set. The victory lifted her to 34 in the rank­ings.

“That’s a nice feel­ing. I’m happy I’m play­ing well,” said Peer, 22. “I had played Akgul four times be­fore and knew her game fairly well, but I knew it would be dif­fi­cult. I tried to play my best and not give her any chances. I’m happy my fa­ther was with me th­ese last two weeks, be­cause I won both tour­na­ments.”
