Aisam, Bopanna make a shock first round exit

Pakistan’s Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and his partner Rohan Bopanna made a shock first round exit from the Wimbledon men’s doubles event in London on Thursday. Bopanna and Qureshi, seeded fourth and runners-up in the 2010 US Open, went down to unseeded Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Far ah 6-2, 2-6, 19-21 in a marathon match.
The “India and Pakistan Express” had won the Gerry Webber Open, their second ATP title together, in the tune-up to the Wimbledon.
Rohan Bopanna is still in contention in the mixed doubles where he is partnering compatriot Sania Mirza. The two are seeded sixth and have received a bye in the first round.
Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi has paired up with Czech Kveta Peschke of Czech Republic and they are seeded fifth.
