With Israeli teenager Shahar Peer now up to a career-high ranking of 18, it will be interesting to see how she fares here in Australia. Reaching the semis on the Gold Coast, and the quarters in Sydney, she's in good form. Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich are in the top 10 doubles players, and hopefully they can repeat their success from last year, and start off on a good note. After a taste of Masters Cup action, they will be hungry for Grand Slam victories more than ever. Ram, won the mixed doubles Grand Slam Wimbledon last year, and knows what it takes.
