“We would have been rooting for them. Great guys. It’s great to see another marquee team out there. They’re gonna gather a lot of attention for doubles. They’re going to be spokesmen for doubles, which we love. I think this is gonna raise the profile,” said Bob. “It choked me up. I could see him (Qureshi); he was quivering a little bit; he was very choked up. Just to give that message to everyone was very heartfelt. You know, even said before, he’s like, I’m gonna say something about Pakistan. I hope you don’t mind. I don’t want to steal your limelight. We said, That’s great,” he added.From all accounts, as we hear about the sad scenario with Pakistan’s cricket team, I only wish this country loved tennis like that, because Aisam is bringing home great joy and respectability as a sportsman. The duo charmed their way into their fan’s hearts with their dignified presence and skill. I was touched that we can have players from India remembering Pakistan in their acknowledgments and vice versa.
“All those people from Pakistan and India supporting us these past two weeks, I thank everyone for helping me out but most importantly I would like to thank Aisam for playing with me and sticking with me we have had a great year together,” said Bopanna. “I must thank my parents, brother, sister for supporting me throughout my career. People in Pakistan and India for supporting us, I must thank Rohan for sticking by me when I needed him the most and for playing with me and helping me with my cause and helping me to send some positive news to people back home in Pakistan and making them smile,” added Qureshi.What a wonderful, vibrant way to begin my day!
