Israeli tennis star Shahar Pe'er missed a chance to make history on Wednesday after losing in the quarterfinals of the US Open in New York 6:4, 6:1 to Anna Chakvetadze of Russia. Chakvetadze, seeded sixth in the tournament, overcame a 4-2 Pe'er lead in the first set to win the next four games and the first set.
