Islamabad, Oct. 27 (ANI): Pakistani tennis ace Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi believes that he can win a Grand Slam and achieve the world number one doubles ranking with his Dutch partner Jean-Julier Rojer.
"Winning a Grand Slam is definitely right there at the top of the ladder. I feel I am capable of doing it. I felt I could have done it with Rohan Bopanna and now, with Jean-Julien Rojer [new partner], it is the same feeling," the Dawn quoted Qureshi, as saying.
According to the paper, the 2010 US Open finalist said that he feels he has become better over time and his experience will help him eventually achieve his goal of winning a Grand Slam.
"I am convinced that sub-continental players tend to mature after they touch their 30s. In cricket, we've had Wasim Akram, Imran Khan, Waqar Younis and Sachin Tendulkar. I think all these guys have generated a lot more power in their games after passing their 30th birthday," he said.
Qureshi also said he was confident of reaching the number one ranking in doubles.
"The bigger goal obviously is to get to world number one in the doubles. I am not happy being No 9, 8 or 7. It's a long step as I am still very new in the doubles, this is only my third year. I feel like I belong to the top and hopefully I can prove that," he said. (ANI)
