NEW YORK: Pakistan star Tennis player Aisam-ul-Haq and his Kazakhstan partner Aleksandr Nedovyesov on Friday sealed a resounding first-round victory 6-1, 7-5 in the Men’s doubles of the US Open 2022.
The Pak-Kazakh duo of Aisam and Nedovyesov displayed sheer dominance on their Argentine team consisting of Sebastian Baez and his compatriot partner Tomas Martin Echeverri.
In the first set of the match, Aisam and his compatriot pounded their Argentine opponents and pulled ahead with an early 1-0 lead by claiming the first set 6-1.
Baez and Echeverri ante their level up in the second set and gave tough competition to their opponents, who, however, held their nerves calm to edge past the formers in a tense second 7-5 and ran away with the victory.
Aisam and Nedovyesov will now take on Jean-Julien Rojer and Marcelo Arevalo in the second round of the Grand Slam on Friday.
