DEN BOSCH (Netherlands), June 20: Pakistan’s tennis ace Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi suffered a setback ahead of the Wimbledon Championships next week and his Dutch partner Jean-Julien Rojer crashed out of the Den Bosch Open on Wednesday.

The pair lost to the German duo of Benjamin Becker and Philipp Petzschner in the quarter-final on 3-6, 6-3, 10-4.

On Tuesday, the Pak-Dutch pair had reached the last-eight with a 7-6, 6-2 win over Colombian Alejandro Falla and Santiago Giraldo.

The pair now head to London where they have been seeded eighth by the organisers.—Agencies
