Season Opener[edit]

The Qatar Open has been the site of the ceremonial opening of the ATP World Tour season since 2009. That year saw Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer (then-World No. 1 and 2, respectively) kick off the season on a tennis court situated on a boat off Doha Bay. The following year saw the duo return, this time playing on a "magic carpet" tennis court in the Souq Waqif.[1] In 2011, the two came back and opened the new season on a court laid in the water of Doha Bay.[2] The 2012 season was once again launched by both Federer and Nadal. This time, they played on a tennis court in the Katara amphitheatre at sunset, amidst more than 4000 burning Roman candles.[3]
