Former world no. 11 Shahar Peer has won the national tennis title in her home nation Isreal on Friday.

Peer defeated Julia Glushko 6-3, 5-7, 6- 1 in a repeat of last year's final which Glushko won.

After the win, Peer commented, "Even had I lost today I would have been pleased because of the process I’m undergoing.  “I’m playing much better now and I know what I’m doing on court.”

Peer has gone back to her former coach Pablo Giacopelli, who she worked with from end of 2008 to 2010.

Peer has dropped from no. 11 in the rankings to no. 74 but is hoping to turn things around in the new season
