Players to Watch For

Rafael Nadal - Injury Concerns Raised

Things haven’t started off well for Rafael Nadal, especially in the midst of the Aussie Open.

Nadal was about to retire but toughed his match out in round two versus McDonald and hopes to return to winning ways in Doha.

The Spanish GOAT has been able to persevere through many tough moments in his career, and we have been graced to see his development from a young age.

After another insane season last year, Nadal will once again have to prove to himself he can battle with the best of them.

Hard court tournaments aren’t his forte, but Nadal has a good history here at Exxon.

Getting back into the match mood and routine will be important to acclimate into for Nadal.

Tennis fans will be eager to see how he rebounds this week.

Roberto Bautista Agut - Defending Champion Returns

RBA is a defending Champion in Doha and has made good strides in this particular part of the year in multiple periods of his career.

Converting his chances and making the most out of the opportunity, he won this tournament in 2022.

He is returning to try and defend his crown, which will be a tough ask for the field at hand.

He is still a very tough out in these conditions, though, and players who are caught a step short will be punished.

Another Spanish legend, RBA can try and turn his fortunes around in Doha, again.

Alexander Zverev - New Slate for the German

Saying that Alexander Zverev has not been the same would be an understatement.

The former top 2 player was hit with a horror injury at the French Open against Rafael Nadal, a match in which he was very much game for.

Sidelining him for multiple months, Zverev needs to get back on track and make up his points fast in 2023.

Sascha is clearly a top talent within the game, but like Dominic Thiem, will his injury play a huge role in his return? This week will be a good test for him.
