Lahore: Pakistan tennis star Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and his wife Faha Akmal Makhdoom have decided to end their eight-month long marriage.

"Aisam didn`t give me time at all and now wants divorce. We could not develop understandings hence decided to part ways," she added.

"I condemn media for continuously giving details of Aisam`s separation. We r not Americans. We need to respect people`s privacy," another tweet said.
