Tennis star Aisamul Haq Qureshi won his second title of the year on Sunday as he and his partner Florin Mergea defeated the pairing of Germany’s Philipp Petzschner and Austria’s Alexander Peya 6-4, 6-3 to clinch the Barcelona Open title.

This was the first time Aisam was playing in the final of the said tournament, having crashed out at the semi-finals stage in 2015.

The duo had earlier eliminated top seeds and world number one pair John Peers and Henri Kontinen 6-4, 6-4 in the quarter-finals before inflicting a 6-3, 5-6, 14-12 defeat over Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau in the semi-final.

With that victory, Aisam adds to his ASB Classic tournament title, which he won in Auckland in January alongside Marcin Matkowski.
