LAHORE - Partnered by India's Prakash Amritraj, son of India's famed player and now commentator Vijay Amritraj, Aisam ul Haq Qureshi launched his Wimbledon doubles campaign in style. It was giant slaying of sorts in the first round of the doubles event at Wimbledon, for the duo overpowered the 16th seeded pair of Australia's Stephen Huss and England's Ross Hutchins in five sets. In a game spread over three and a half hours, played across two days, the score was: 6-4, 6-7, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3. Aisam/Amritraj pairing clinched the deciding fifth set on day two (Wednesday); things were at even keel with two set apiece when insufficient light pushed the play into the second day. In the second round, Aisam and Prakash will face the winner of the match between the Australian/German pair of Rameez Junaid and Phillip Marx, and Spaniards Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Ivan Navarro. From the outset Tuesday evening, showing little sign of fatigue from the qualifying rounds, Aisam and Prakash seemed determined to come good against the seeded pair. All four players boasted a strong serve, and it reflected in the first set stats - a single break point opportunity, that was grasped by the Asians to take the first set 6-4. Looking to atone for the setback, Huss and Hutchins buckled down. No break points for either side, the set was decided by a tie-breaker that went for 25 points where Aisam and his partner had his chances but the superior pair prevailed by countering Aisam's impeccable serve with scorching returns. Both sides had gauged the other, and were finding rhythm while returning serve. In the third set, Aisam and Prakash on three occasions faced break point chances, but their nerves and their serves held to deny the seeded pair the comfort of nudging ahead, and when out of five one was converted Aisam and Amritraj were in the lead. Having read the pattern of Indo-Pak pair's play, Huss and Hutchins started returning serves - particularly the second one -quite ferociously. The set was over rather quickly, as there were few points played. Once Aisam's serve was broken through return winners and Prakash netted a high volley, Huss and Hutchins bagged the set 6-4. The evening sky by now had darkened enough for the tournament referee to declare suspension in play till the next afternoon. When the play resumed on the court adjacent to the one used on Tuesday, Aisam came out firing on all cylinders, opening the proceedings with an ace. For a pair that seemed determined to move to the second round, the body language was nothing short of perfect.Aisam and Prakash went for their returns, and this paid dividends when they got a chance to break their opponents' serve early in the set. However, both times they were denied by a combination of big serves and strong volleying. Still, the Asian pair persevered, not letting the opposition anywhere close to a whiff of a break. The pressure kept mounting until eventually on their third break point, Aisam and Prakash forced an error at the net to get the crucial break of serve with the Pakistani serving for the match. And Aisam did it with consummate ease, finishing if off at 40-15.
