Peer won less than half the points on her first serve and was broken five times in a 6-2 6-1 loss.
There were no such problems for sixth seed Magdalena Rybarikova, although she was made to work hard for her 6-3 4-6 6-4 victory over France’s Pauline Parmentier.
Seventh seed Anna-Lena Groenefeld had a far smoother ride against lucky loser Tereza Hladikova, winning 6-3 6-2.
The home crowd in Bad Gastein were given something to cheer by Austrian wild card Yvonne Meusburger, who overcame an 82-place world-ranking deficit to edge past Tatjana Malek 6-2 2-6 6-4.
