Former world No. 11 Shahar Peer could miss the rest of the season after she was diagnosed with a partial tear of her plantar fascia. The 26-year-old won her first-round match at the Ningbo tournament in China, but after feeling pain in her foot she went for an MRI, which revealed the injury. 

“As a result of the tear, Shahar decided, based on advice from several doctors, to retire from the rest of the tournament,” a member of her team wrote on her Facebook page. “The decision about her care, as well as future tournaments and the rest of the season, will be made in the upcoming few days with her doctors.”
