Pakistani tennis ace Aisam aims to be world's No 1 doubles player
Islamabad, Jan 11 (ANI): Pakistani tennis ace Aisamul Haq Qureshi may have started his new partnership with Dutch player Jean-Julien Rojer with disappointment by losing in the opening round at the Brisbane International, but is determined not to give up until he becomes "the number-one ranked doubles player" in the world.
His former Indian partner Rohan Bopanna reached the semi-finals of the Chennai Open playing with his new partner Mahesh Bhupatti.
While Aisam was off to a disastrous start - losing in straight sets 6-2, 6-4 to local pair Greg Jones and Marinko Matosevic - in the lead-up to the Australian Open that starts next week, the Pakistani is hoping for an improved show in Sydney.
"I'm aiming to win grand slams this year. I won't give up until I'm the number-one ranked doubles player. I'll try to make the best out of what I've got and hopefully it'll work out."
Change in combination," The Express Tribune quoted Aisam, as saying.
Critics remain sceptical over whether the change in combination will work for Aisam, but the tennis player was confident that the new pairing will soon find its form.
"These warm-up events will only help me and Rojer improve. We're playing against top players and right now there's a lesson to be learnt even if we lose," he added. (ANI)
