She struggled desperately on her serve once more on Monday, being broken six times by Wozniack, ranked No. 57, in the one hour and 35-minute encounter.

Next up for Pe’er, who remained at No. 54 in the world in Monday’s rankings, are the prestigious events in Madrid and Rome ahead of the start of Roland Garros on May 27.

Dudi Sela, who remained at No. 63 in the men’s rankings, will play in the clay-court tournament in Belgrade this week and will face a qualifier in the first round.
