Shahar Pe'er's recent slump hit a new low on Sunday after she failed to qualify for the Western & Southern Women's Open in Cincinnati, losing 6-3, 6-2 to Olga Govortsova in the second and final qualifying round. The 22-year-old has not needed to qualify for a tournament in years, but after dropping all the way down to number 65 in the world rankings was left out of the the main draw of the lucrative Cincinnati event . Dudi Sela will be playing in the Rogers Cup in Montreal this week and will face a qualifier in the first round, with ninth-seed Gilles Simon expected to be his opponent in the second round should he advance. Andy Ram and Max Mirnyi received a first round bye in the doubles tournament, while Yoni Erlich was forced to pull out following an arm injury. Erlich is expected to be fit for the men's tournament in Cincinnati next week.
