DOHA – As the Official Airline, Qatar Airways is bringing in another eventful season of tennis to Doha with the world’s leading players competing in the Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2014 tournament taking place from 30 December to 4 January 2014.
Widely acclaimed as Qatar’s most prestigious Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) event, World No.1 player Rafael Nadal, World No.3 David Ferrer and World No.4 Andy Murray will take centre stage and battle it out on the courts of the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex in Doha.
Nadal will be returning to Doha after a 2013 season that saw him win 10 titles, including an eighth French Open and a second US Open. This is Nadal’s sixth appearance in the Qatari capital with his best result being a finals appearance in 2010.
