Dubai:

Rohan Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi on Saturday won their first ATP title after re-union as they beat Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic in the doubles final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships here.

The second seeded 'Indo-Pak Express' duo beat their top seeded opponents Nestor of Canada and Zimonjic (Serbia) 6-4 6-3 in the summit clash that lasted one hour and eight minutes.

The win was a sort of a revenge for Bopanna and Qureshi who lost to the same opponents in the final of the Sydney International in January.

This was the fifth title overall for Bopanna and Qureshi together and first after they re-united at the beginning of the season. They played with different partners for two seasons.
