Zheng bows out of Suzhou Open

Israel's Shahar Peer denied the Suzhou Ladies Open a home champion as she claimed a three-set win over China's Zheng Saisai in the final.

Shahar Peer putting all her weight behind the shot

After finishing runner-up in Baku last week, world number 113 Peer, who was ranked as high as 11th at one point in 2011, went one better by securing her first title of the year.

It was hard earned, third seed Peer starting well before suffering a mid-match slump but raising her level sufficiently to take the decider and clinch a 6-2 2-6 6-3 victory over 195th-ranked Zheng.
