Sunday, June 21, 2009
KARACHI: Secretary Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) Rashid Malik says Pakistan ace tennis player Aisam-ul-Haq who has been playing in tournaments regularly will strengthen Pakistan Davis Cup team in their tie against Philippines next month.
Aisam-ul-Haq will join Aqeel Khan, Jalil Khan, Yasir Khan and Jibran Mohamadi in Manila. “Aisam-ul-Haq has been playing tournaments when we have him in Manila he would easily adjust,” Rashid Malik told PPI.
Rashid who will be the non-playing captain of the team said that they are taking Jibran Mohammadi as a substitute. “He is a good doubles player and has a edge over Yasir in clay courts,” Rashid said.
The Davis Cup tie between Pakistan and Philippines will be played from 10th to 12th July.
He said that Aisam would not be playing in Kuala Lumpur event as he has qualified for the main rounds of Wimbledon.
