Bautista Agut defeats Basilashvili to secure Qatar Exxon Mobile Open in 2022-Doha News

Roberto Bautista Agut was selected as the winner of Qatar’s Grand ATP Tennis Tournament after defeating third-seeded Nikolo’s Bashirashibiri in a fierce match on Saturday to win the Qatar Exxon Mobile Open title.

This is Spain’s 10th career title for Bautista Agut, his second victory in Doha and previously won in 2019. This was his first success since then, ending the three-year drought at the ATP circuit.

World No. 16 dropped just one set towards the title, holding a record of 10-9 in championship matches and winning 10 tour-level crowns. Doha is the second ATP tournament in which the Spaniards hold multiple titles after winning trophies in Auckland in 2016 and 2018.

The 33-year-old boy played aggressively from the baseline and took revenge on Nikoloz Bashirashibiri, Georgia, who won the championship match final in Doha last year.

Basilashvili had eight aces in this year’s final, but Bautista Agut had nothing. Georgians made three double mistakes.

“It’s been a while since I raised the trophy. I’ve been working very hard to reach another final and get a chance to win another title,” said Bautista Agut. “Winning the title was a big dream for me. Now I have won twice in Doha. It’s very special to me.”

Amir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Tani, and Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) President Sheikh Joan bin Hamad bin Khalifa al-Tani also attended the final.

The 2022 Qatar Open, also known as the 2022 Qatar Exxon Mobile Open for sponsorship reasons, was the 30th edition of the league with a whopping $ 1,176,595 million in prize money.

The Men’s Tournament was held from February 12th to 19th at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha.

It is now part of the ATP World Tour 250 Series of the Tennis Professionals Association World Tour, which will host the first ATP Qatar Open for Men in January 1993.

The Qatar Open was selected for the 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021 ATP250 Tournament of the Year.

Israeli player Jonathan Erlich

A young Qatar (QAYON) who opposes normalization has called on the tournament organizer to host Israeli tennis player Jonathan Erlich.

Translation: QAYON and PACBI are away from playing this dangerous role in the Qatar Tennis Federation and all Qatar Sports Federations with the aim of normalizing Israeli colonial system and apartheid in the consciousness of the people of the Arab region. I am calling to put.

This is not the first time Erlich has been in Qatar. He has participated in the 2016 Qatar Open before.
