Peer had a partial tear of the plantar fascia.
Peer had an MRI in Ningbo China where she was playing the WTA $125K Challenge several weeks ago which revealed the injury. The 26 year old won her first round match at the Ningbo tournament but after experiencing pain in her foot she went for the test.
Peer posted on her Facebook page: "As a result of the tear, Shahar decided, based on advice from several doctors, to retire from the rest of the tournament. 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."
Peer was ranked as high as no. 11 and was just one win away from becoming the first Israeli to break into the world's top 10 a few years ago.
