Iga Swiatek of Poland, the current world No. 1, is in the front row of the 32 players competing in the singles and 16 pairs competing in the doubles events
Nine of the top ten players in the world have already committed to playing in the Qatar TotalEnergies Open in 2023, which will take place from February 13 to February 18 at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex in Doha.
Of the world's top-ten superstars, only Greece's Maria Sakkari, the world No. 6, will likely not be in action in Doha for the $780,637 total prize-money event.
Iga Swiatek of Poland, the current world No. 1, is in the front row of the 32 players competing in the singles and 16 pairs competing in the doubles events of the 21st WTA 500 competition. Last year, Swiatek won in straight sets over Anett Kontaveit of Estonia to win the golden falcon trophy in Doha for the first time in her professional career.
The Warsaw-born player, 21, will be joined by A-listers like Ons Jabeur, Jessica Peluga, Caroline Garcia, Aryna Sabalenka, Coco Gauff, Daria Kasatkina, Veronika Kudermetova, and Belinda Bencic to provide tennis fans in Qatar and the region with an unforgettable experience. After winning in Doha, the player added two Grand Slams (the French Open and US Open) to her trophy cabinets in addition to wins at Indian Wells, Miami
A victory in Doha for World No. 2 Ons Jabeur, the highest-ranked African and Arab tennis player in WTA and ATP history, will not only solidify her legendary status in the region but also guarantee the tournament has an Arabian or African winner for the first time in its history, a feat that many are eagerly anticipating.
Due to disappointing losses at Wimbledon and the US Open, the 28-year-old Tunisian came close to winning two Grand Slam tournaments last year.
While Kvitova is one of the confirmed players for the main draw, Azarenka, on the other hand, is on the alternate players list at this year's edition.
