Shahar Pe'er suffered an early exit from Wimbledon Thursday losing to Shuai Peng of China 6-4, 7-6.
Having trailed 5-0 in the second set tiebreak, 18-year-old Pe'er brought the score back to 5-4 but failed to capitalize on the opportunity, losing the tiebreak 7-4.
Pe'er, seeded 20 at Wimbledon and ranked 24th in the world, will be disappointed to lose to a much lower ranked Peng, currently seeded 46th.
