CASE STUDIES Case Study-1 Pakistan fetes Grand Slam tennis star Aisam

LAHORE: Fans, relatives and tennis officials gave Pakistan’s first Grand Slam finalist a hero’s homecoming on Wednesday, hailing him a peacemaker and a role model. Government and Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) officials draped Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi with garlands as fans chanted “long live Aisam” and “our new hero.” Qureshi, 30, fell short of winning Pakistan’s first Grand Slam title but his unusual pairing with India’s Rohan Bopanna in the men’s doubles was praised against a backdrop of struggling peace efforts between Islamabad and New Delhi. It also came as Pakistan cricket struggles to fight off damaging allegations of corruption.

Qureshi and his Czech partner Kveta Peschke went down to Americans Liezel Huber and Bob Bryan in the mixed doubles final of the US Open on Friday, before Qureshi and Bopanna lost to Bob and Mike Bryan in the men’s doubles final. “I am pleased that I have been able to bring some joy to my countrymen,” said Qureshi. “I didn’t win the titles but I am sure I will do that in the years to come,” added Qureshi, who plans to play exhibition matches with Bopanna soon.
