Pakistan star Aisam, Dutch partner reach Wimbledon second round
LONDON – Pakistan tennis star Aisamul Haq and Dutch partner Gilles defeated Benjamin Becker and Roberto Martinez 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 to reach the second round of Wimbledon on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Andy Murray was at his imperious best as he jettisoned Dutchman Robin Haase 6-1 6-1 6-4 to reach the third round.
The 2013 champion showed none of chinks that led him to being broken three times in a set on Tuesday, appearing to be on auto pilot as he bullied Haas into submission on a humid Court One.
The Scot dropped only one point on serve in the first set, saved the only break point he faced in the second and finished off his 78th-ranked opponent with a flourish.
The third seed will next face either Italian Andreas Seppi or rising Croatian talent Borna Coric. –Reuters
