Shahar Pe'er produced one of her most defiant efforts of the season against Patty Schnyder, but eventually bowed out of the Porsche Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany, on Thursday. The first set was closely contested, but the Swiss (9) edged the Israeli in a tense tie breaker, not before failing to serve out the set at 6-5 while squandering no less than three set points. Pe'er (24) produced a trademark comeback, taking a 4-0 lead in the second set and strolling to level terms by eventually winning the set 6-2. But the experienced Schnyder regained her composure in the decider and broke Pe'er twice using her powerful forehand to produce some top-notch baseline winners. The Israeli tried to fight back but lost the contest 6-7, 6-2, 4-6 after a two hour battle. Pe'er, who teamed up with Daniela Huntuchova (5) in the doubles event, failed to advance after losing 6-3, 2-6, 2-6 to Dinara Safina and Katrina Srebotnik late Wednesday.
