Help Bopanna-Qureshi pair receives Humanitarian Award.!!!
London, Nov 27 (PTI) Their message of 'Stop War Start Tennis' fetched Indian Davis Cupper Rohan Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Of The Year award during the ATP World Tour Finals here.

The two players have been playing with the message of 'Stop War Start Tennis' for quite some time on the Tour and in Grand Slams.

They rose to prominence by reaching the final of US Open where they ended runners-up to the legendary Mike and Bob Bryan.

While Qureshi has received this award in the past as well when he teamed up with Israel's Amir Hadad in 2002, it's a first for Bopanna.

"It's a great feeling to be here and presented with this award from our peers and the ATP. I would like to thank my family, friends and Aisam. It's been an emotional and unbelievable year for us.
