ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistan Davis Cupper and Pride of Performance award holder, Hamidul Haq, has expressed satisfaction over the level of performance of Pakistan in the Fed Cup Asia Oceania Zone Group-II that participated in this event after a ten years gap. "In fact, India despite having the services of their-star player Sania Mirza finished last out of 8 nations in Asia Oceania Zone Group-I. However, Pakistan could have performed far better with a bit of planning, training. Participation of our players in the ITF Women Pro (WTA) circuit prior to the Fed Cup," Hameed revealed during an exclusive interview to The Nation here on Sunday. He said that it was a criminal negligence on the part of the previous management of PTF not to send Pakistan team over the last 10 years. In 2002, our star player, Nida Waseem defeated Sania Mirza in an ITF World Junior event match that held in Pakistan in 2000 while Farah Khurshid was also available, and then a fresh batch of players including Sarah Mahboob, Natasha Afridi, Anoosha Aslam, Amena Hamid, Nida Rahim and Sara Mansoor were ready in 2005 but by waiting for over a decade the previous PTF management wasted this talent. Even with an inexperienced team Pakistan able to finish sixth out of 8 nations in Asia Oceania Group-II. "We could have been easily at top 3 spot had Pak regularly participated in this prestigious event that enjoys equal status with the Davis Cup," he argued. In a way, our inexperienced Fed Cup team's performance is almost at par with our experienced Davis Cup players those are still lurking in Asia Oceania Zone Group-II, he said.
