Shahar Pe'er remained hot with a doubles win on Monday in India, and her good fortune stuck to countrywoman Tzipi Obziler at the first ever Bangalore Open. Obziler, the Israeli No. 3 at 142 in the world, defeated Hsieh Su-wei of Taiwan, 6-3, 6-4 to move into the second round while Pe'er joined forces with Ukrainian Mariya Koryttseva to beat Ekaterina Dzehalevich of Belarus and Hungary's Kyra Nagy 6-4, 6-2. On Tuesday Pe'er (36), the second seed, will play her opening-round singles match against Italian Maria Elena Camerin (92). Obziler will team with Indonesian Angelique Widjaja to play the doubles top seeds, local favorite Sania Mirza and South African Liezel Huber. On the men's tour, Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich, who won Israel's lone point in the 4-1 Davis Cup defeat to Serbia-Montenegro this weekend, survived two tiebreakers to reach the quarterfinals at the Open 13 in Marseille, France. The second seeded Israelis ousted the Croatian duo of Mario Ancic and Ivan Ljubicic 7-6(5), 7-6(6). They'll next face Christopher Kas and Philipp Petzschner of Germany.
