Third-seeded Shahar Pe'er of Israel beat fifth-seeded Samantha Stosur of Australia on Sunday, winning the Prague Open. After a brief rest, Pe'er took the court together with France's Marion Bartoli in an attempt to become the second woman this year to sweep singles and doubles titles at the same tournament. The 19-year-old Israeli tennis sensation was ranked 35th in the world, a ranking about to improve following her recent win.
