He played flawless tennis to secure 6-4, 6-2 win and outclass his confident opponent in a professional manner. I will keep alive the tennis tradition of my tennis family, Sameer said after this important win. Sameer is the grandson of tennis legend Khawaja Iftikhar and son of former Davis Cupper Tayyab Iftihar. Pakistans tennis star Aisamul Haq is his first cousin and role model for him. Aisam is my role model. I started playing tennis watching him, he added.

Using his experience Shahzad gave real tough time to Yasir by pushing him as much as the score dictates 7-5 (5) 5-7, 6-3.
