Reflecting on the loss, Aisam, who does not feature in the singles in international events, said: “I think I was not in the best shape for the doubles. After Friday’s singles, I was very much exhausted.”
“I was unable to deliver the way I wanted to. My partner displayed good tennis, but I couldn’t help him in the best possible way”, he added.
Pakistan’s next Davis Cup campaign will be in the World Group I play-offs in February 2022.
