It is the first time a Pakistani and an Indian have paired up to play on the same side in professional sport.
That has generated global headlines with the international media calling them "ambassadors of peace" and the "Indo-Pak express."

They are among the top eight doubles teams in the world and made the final of the US Open in September.
This interview by Riz Khan was broadcast on Wednesday, November 24, 2010.
