Aisam Qureshi - December 2006


Aisam Qureshi



The featured player for December is Aisam Qureshi of Pakistan.

Aisam played in both the India F3 and F4 events winning the F3 event in Delhi and reaching the quarter final of F4 which was also held in Delhi.  These two events saw Aisam competing in Futures for the first time since early May with the event at India F3 his sole appearance in a Futures singles final during 2006.

Aisam was seeded at both these Indian Futures.  The title was won at India F3 following a three set victory over fellow Indian Rohan Bopanna.  Aisam dropped the first set 26 before taking the next two sets to complete a 26 63 63 victory.

The success of India F3 was, however, not to be repeated in the India F4 event where Aisam lost in straight sets to Korean player Hyun-Woo Nam, 46 46, the same player who Aisam defeated en route to the India F3 title in the semi final 64 62.

In total, Aisam won 27 points and one title in December 2006.
