Held annually in Doha, the Qatar ExxonMobil Open is an outdoor hard court tournament. A rather prestigious one at that, this year's event will be the 24th edition with most big names (and then some) coming back from last year.
Novak Djokovic, the unanimously best player in the world will start out his season there, along with former Doha champion (and 14-times Grand Slam victor) Rafael Nadal who will try to gain some traction after a rather disastrous season. The defending champion of the event is David Ferrer who although entered the main draw, already lost and out of the tournament. Regardless of this fact, the tourney is pretty much Djokovic's to lose, and not just because he is currently the best player in the world. The other reason is that the Qatar ExxonMobil remains one of the last remaining tournaments which the Serbian entered in the past, but still hasn't won.
It is really hard to envision anyone knocking him out here, especially Nadal whom he beat the last four times they have met while also winning 16 out of their last 23 matches. The record champion of the event is Roger Federer (winning three times) who just like last year, will try his luck in Brisbane this week.
