ATP doubles stars Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer visited children at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center last week while the ATP Western & Southern Union was going on. Qureshi and Rojer are doubles partners on the ATP circuit this year.
Qureshi and Rojer played games and autographed t-shirts for the children at the hospital.
“Sometimes as tennis players it is easy to get caught up in your own world,” commented Rojer. “However, this visit to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital puts everything in perspective. I was very impressed with the way the staff of the hospital does such a great job and with a lot of enthusiasm. I hope that our visit helped the children and their families.”
“The visit to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital was a great reminder for me how we as professional tennis players can do to help brighten the lives of others who are going through difficult times - not only the children, but their parents,” commented Qureshi. Both Juls and I talked about how the parents of the children seemed to appreciate our visit and how difficult it must be for them to see their children suffering. I love children and have two nephews, and it is not an easy thing to go to a hospital. But Juls and I know that it can make a small difference and help to put a smile on everyone’s face if only for a little while. My very best wishes to the staff at the hospital and the families who are in their care.”
