Asiam-Ul-Haq Qureshi and his wife, Faha, visited Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital in Lahore, Pakistan, this week.

The newly-weds were received at the largest hospital, specialising in cancer treatment in Pakistan, by twin Afghani girls, who both suffer from cancer. The two of them share same type of cancer.

"Tennis has blessed me so much this year," said Qureshi, who serves as a United Nations Development Program (UNDP) goodwill ambassador for flood relief.

"Making the Barclay's ATP World Tour Finals opened my eyes and gave me hope to work even harder for next year. I felt that if I can give some hope to others who suffer from life's challenges they too might fight harder as well.

"The lessons I have learnt from tennis I would like to give back to those in need of hope and inspiration."
