DUBAI: Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and his Indian partner Rohan Bopanna on Saturday won their first ATP title after re-union as they beat Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic in the doubles final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
The second seeded ‘Indo-Pak Express’ duo beat their top seeded opponents Nestor of Canada and Zimonjic (Serbia) 6-4, 6-3 in the summit clash that lasted one hour and eight minutes.
Today’s win was a sort of a revenge for Bopanna and Qureshi who lost to the same opponents in the final of the Sydney International in January.
This was the five title overall for Bopanna and Qureshi together and first after they re-united at the beginning of the season. They played with different partners for two seasons.
