Doha 2012: Draw and Preview

Happy New Year everyone! 2012 is just underway and tennis is already back in full swing. Roger Federer will begin the year in Doha where he is defending champion and a three time winner at the Qatar Open. Federer ended 2011 with a 17-0 run which included three titles (Basel, Paris, London). The Swiss maestro won a sixth World Tour Finals title, going undefeated for the fifth time. He will be playing with a new racquet and new Nike gear for the spring season, including the Australian Open.

Doha kicks off tomorrow (January 2). In a rematch of last year’s final, Federer faces Nikolay Davydenko in the first round. A potential final against Rafael Nadal is possible but with a dangerous Tsonga lurking in the bottom half of the draw. View the draw below.
