Shahar Pe'er's doubles winning streak came to an end after nine matches Wednesday as she and partner Janette Husarova of Slovakia went down 6-4, 6-2 to Australians Nicole Pratt and Bryanne Stewart in the second round of the Internazionali d'Italia in Rome. Pe'er last lost a doubles match on April 2, in the final qualifying round at Amelia Island. Since then, she teamed with Tzipi Obziler to win four matches during the Europe/Africa Zone Group I Fed Cup tournament in Bulgaria and won four more with Marion Bartoli of France as they took the title last week at the Prague Open. On Tuesday, Pe'er and Husarova playing together for the first time won in the first round in Rome, but it was a different story against Pratt and Stewart. The Australian duo won 59 of the 100 points played and scored four breaks to Pe'er and Husarova's one on the way to a comprehensive win. Pe'er will now have a needed few days rest after playing 11 matches in 10 days before taking part in next week's Istanbul Cup, her final tune-up before the French Open. On Friday, Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich will face in the quarterfinals of the ATP Masters Series event in Hamburg, Germany.
