Indo-Pak Express will be back on track, Rohan Bopanna-Aisam-ul-Haq will return after 6 years

In the current era, the coming together of India (Pakistan) and Pakistan (Pakistan) seems like a nuisance, but it is happening. Nowhere else on the tennis court. The pair of India's Rohan Bopanna (Rohan Bopanna) and Aisam-ul-Haq of Pakistan, popularly known as Indo-Pak Express, are going to return to the tennis court. With this, the players of India and Pakistan will be seen playing together after a long time.

The Indo-Pak Express will return to the Acapulco ATP 500 tournament to be played in Mexico on 15 March. After six years, the pair will return to the court. Earlier, the pair had appeared in the Schengen ATP 250 tournament. The 40-year-old duo of India and Pakistan will play Philhas together in only one tournament.

Were shown in 2010

The biggest success of the pair, which made headlines due to poor Indo-Pak diplomatic relationship, was the 2010 US Open final, where they lost to the Bryan brothers. Bopanna reached his career-best ranking at that time at the third position. Bopanna had then decided to team up with veteran Mahesh Bhupathi to prepare for the 2012 Olympics. Qureshi told PTI, "Right now we are coming together only to play in Mexico. We have not yet talked about the future. " Asked if this could be a long-term arrangement, Qureshi said, "Hopefully, if it goes well, we can play more tournaments together in the future."

Earlier there were plans to come together

The Pakistani tennis legend said that he was actually trying to enter the Dubai Duty Free Championship simultaneously, but his plan was not successful. He said, "We spent a lot of time together in Australia. We were planning to play in Dubai. He needed a partner and I also needed a partner. So we thought that let's make a team for the Dubai Open, unfortunately we could not qualify for it. Our combined ranking was not of that level but we managed to make it to Acapulco. ”

Decision will be taken later in the future

Whether or not the pair will play together in the future will be decided later. Right now the focus of both of these is on doing well in the upcoming tournament. Qureshi said, "I am very excited. Hopefully, we will play well together and it will be successful. Then we can decide to play some more tournaments together, but at the moment we have come together only for this tournament. I do not know what his (Bopanna) plan is for 2021. They have decided to pair with someone or not. We will see how the situation is. "

Bopanna and Qureshi started the 'Stop War, Start Tennis' campaign to spread the peace message, which also received the 'Earth as humanity' award. The Acapulco ATP 500 tournament will be played from 15 March to 20 March.
