Swiatek among top women stars to participate in 2023 Qatar TotalEnergies Open

DOHA: This year’s Qatar TotalEnergies Open will feature nine out of the world’s top ten players, according to the organisers.

The tournament will be held from February 13 to 18 at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex.

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.

The world No. 1 and defending champion Iga Swiatek of Poland leads the star cast of 32 players for the singles and 16 pairs for the doubles events of the 21st edition of the WTA 500 tournament.

Swiatek defeated Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit in straight sets last year to lift the golden falcon trophy for the first time in her career in Doha.

The 21-year-old Warsaw-born player will be joined by current world number two Ons Jabeur, Jessica Peluga, Caroline Garcia, Aryna Sabalenka, Coco Gauff, Daria Kasatkina, Veronika Kudermetova, and Belinda Bencic.
