Pakistan’s tennis superstar Aisamul Haq Qureshi doubled his title tally for this year on Sunday as he, along with Florin Mergea beat the German-Austrian pairing of Philipp Petzschner and Austria’s Alexander Peya 6-4, 6-3 to clinch the Barcelona Open title.

Aisam was playing his first ever Barcelona Open final after the 34-year-old crashed out of the 2015 event at the semi-finals stage.

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 defeating Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau 6-3, 5-6, 14-12  in the semi-final.
