Shahar Pe’er failed to make it past a second round of an event for the ninth time in her past 11 tries on Tuesday, losing 6-3, 6-1 to Klara Zakopalova in the second round of the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo.

The 24-year-old Israeli, ranked No. 26 in the world, hit just 46 percent of her first serves in against Zakopalova (48), who won in a mere 66 minutes.


Pe’er will remain in the Far East in the coming week to play in the $4,500,000 China Open in Beijing before ending what has been a disappointing season with tournaments in Linz, Austria, and Luxembourg.
