Aisam Creates History as Pakistan Qualify for Tennis World Group Playoff


Aisamul Haq created history when he booked a World Group playoff berth for Pakistan after a thumping straight set triumph over Taiwan’s Lu Yen in reverse singles in the Davis Cup Asia Oceania Group-I on Sunday. With brilliant passing shots, anticipation and court coverage, Aisam prevailed over the Taiwanese. Both Aisam and Yen were tied at 2-2 in the first set before the Pakistani made it 3-2, holding his serve. As Pakistan had already qualified for the World Group playoff, Taiwan opted to field Chen instead of Wang Yeu Tzuou against Aqeel in the second reverse singles.
