Shahar Pe’er will enter Roland Garros on the back of yet another disappointing defeat after falling 4-6, 6-4, 6- 0 to Alize Cornet in the second round of the Strasbourg International on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Israeli, ranked No. 53 in the world, dropped her serve eight times against Cornet (83) in the two hour and 28 minute encounter.

Pe’er will now travel to Paris for the start of the French Open on Sunday, looking to finally progress past a second round of a tournament after nine straight unsuccessful attempts.

Elsewhere, former world No. 1 Kim Clijsters has confirmed that she will bring down the curtain on her second career at the end of this year’s US Open.

The 28-year-old came out of retirement in 2009 after more than two years out of the sport, winning three more Grand Slam titles to take her career tally to four.

Injury, which has hampered the Belgian throughout her career, has already forced her to pull out of the upcoming French Open.
