Shahar Pe'er's partnership with Australian Bryanne Stewart ended in the second round of the women's doubles event at the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells, California, on Wednesday. The Israeli/Australian duo fell to the tournament's three seeds, Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain and Meghann Shaughnessy, 6-1, 6-2 in under an hour. Ruano Pascual and Shaughnessy thoroughly dominated, breaking Pe'er and Stewart four times out of five tries, while not having their serve broken even once. The favorites won 56 points to just 32 for Pe'er and Stewart. Now it's on to Miami for Pe'er, where she will play in the Nasdaq-100 Open, the largest tournament on the calendar apart from the Grand Slams and season-ending Tour Championships. On Tuesday, Pe'er will attend the Stars for Stars banquet, where the 2005 awards will be handed out. Pe'er is up for the WTA's Most Impressive Newcomer award.
