Shahar Pe'er crashed out of the Zurich Open Tuesday evening, losing in the first round 6-4, 6-3 to Agnieszka Radwanska. The No. 16 ranked Israeli struggled on her serve throughout the match and allowed Radwanska (No. 31) to reach 14 break points during the one-hour and 22-minute match. Despite only converting five of her break opportunities, the Pole was in complete control all evening and did more than enough to comfortably beat Pe'er. Radwanska dominated Pe'er's serve right from the start, breaking in the first game of the match. The score, however, was soon tied (3-3) after Pe'er broke back in the sixth game. Pe'er dropped her serve once more in the ninth game and Radwanska soon wrapped up the set. The second set began just like the first, with Radwanska breaking to take a 1-0 lead. Pe'er claimed the next two games to go in front, but failed to maintain her momentum. Radwanska won the next three games to retake the lead. She completed her win with another break of serve in the ninth game.
