Mumbai, Sep 21 (UNI) Rohan Bopanna will partner Pakistan's Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi in the 416,000 dollars ATP Mumbai Kingfisher Open, which will be held at the Cricket Club of India courts from September 24 to 30.

Bopanna, who reached a career-high 84 in doubles on Monday, has claimed four Challenger titles with Pakistan's top player this season. The duo completed a hat-trick of titles in Europe, winning in Manchester, Nottingham and Segovia, before adding the fourth in Bronx, New York, just ahead of the US Open.

Bopanna had reached the final of the Mumbai Open last year with compatriot Mustafa Ghouse. The duo had upset top seeds Alexander Peya and Bjorn Phau in the first round, and fourth seeds James Auckland and Jamie Delgado in the semi-finals.

Qureshi had partnered Leander Paes last year, but lost to the third seeds Mario Ancic and Mahesh Bhupathi in the quarters last year.

Bopanna this year has also got a wild card into the main draw of the singles in the tournament.
