TASHKENT, Uzbekistan, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Israel's Shahar Peer won her second straight WTA event Sunday, defeating Akgul Amanmuradova in the Tashkent Open in Uzbekistan.

Peer downed the Uzbekistan player 6-3, 6-4.

The win was the fifth on the tour for Peer, who also won in Guangzhou, China, last week.

"I've played 10 matches in row without dropping a set, and that's a nice feeling," Peer said.
