Sally Peers

Why not start the year with an upset? Australia’s Sally Peers, a wildcard recipient into the Brisbane field, upset 7th-seeded Alisa Kleybanova of Russia 3-6 6-4 6-3 for arguably the biggest win of her career. Although Kleybanova was fighting some hip problems in the final set, take nothing away from Peers, as Kleybanova was well enough to tighten the final set at 5-3 after Peers was up 5-0. For players trying to pull an upset, it’s often very difficult to close the show. But close the show, Peers did.
