KARACHI: Pakistan’s tennis star Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and his Dutch partner Jean-Julien Rojer qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals after reaching the BNP Paribas Masters quarter-finals on Thursday.

Qureshi will be playing in his second consecutive ATP World Tour Finals after he qualified for the event last year with Indian partner Rohan Bopanna.

This year, Qureshi and Rojer became the seventh pair to qualify for the event which will take place in London from November 5-12.

The Pak-Dutch duo beat Feliciano Lopez and Nenad Zimonjic 6-4, 6-7(3), 17-15 in a match that lasted almost two hours to clinch their spot in the finals.

Earlier in the year, the pair won the Estoril Open and the Gerry Weber Open.
