What I don't understand is what happened to peer. She's easily one of the fittest players on the tour

At her best Shahar is a very good player, maybe a tier of a counter-puncher behind someone like Aga.
Now at her worst, well she's not top 100 level period and there's not much to add.

Peak Shahar >> Peak Anna, and as for summarizing a career let's do that when Shahar calls it quits, although she has already eclipsed Anna in everything but # of titles.
What do you want to measure? top 10 wins? top 20 wins? career high ranking? weeks spent in top 20? Slam achievements (2 singles QF and a doubles final + a handful of 4th rounds next to one R4)? Deeper runs at Tier I? Because Shahar trumps Anna in all of these.

I agree Shahar and Dudi are overhyped here, as is every sportsperson/actor/you name it who have done something abroad. It's not their fault that the local press is so lame and superficial.
Anna on the other hand has never gotten the respect she deserved because she was treated by the media like an immigrant or half-Israeli at best.

Shahar has certainly been one of the fittest over the past few years.
How else would she have spent so many weeks inside the top 20, due to her serve and powerful strokes?
Fitness has been a key and it's no coincidence that during her best stretch in 2010 when she went 5-4 against top 10 opposition, she also won 11 consecutive 3-setters.
That, and her strong presence of mind, which is completely gone.

Her refusal to step down to ITFs is alarming actually. Does she think all those players who start to rebuild their careers from ITFs are stupid and she'll magically find form losing in straight sets every week?

Shahar play some ITF tourneys ASAP. Too embarrassing.
