What Happened at the 2020 WTA Qatar Open?
Aryna Sabalenka won the 2020 title at the Qatar Open after defeating Petra Kvitova in the final in straight sets. Sabalenka won 6-3, 6-3.
The Belarusian, seeded ninth in the tournament, had a bye in the first round before she overcame Anett Kontaveit in the second round in a tough three-setter. This was followed by a 6-3, 6-0 mauling of Maria Sakkari in the third, before getting past Saisai Zheng and Svetlana Kuznetsova over the next two rounds.
Kvitova needed to get past Ash Barty in the last four, while Karolina Pliskova was knocked out in the third round.
In the absence of the defending champion Petra Kvitova, Elise Mertens went on to win the 2019 edition of the Qatar Open, defeating Simona Halep in the final in three exciting sets. Mertens had gone into the tournament as an unseeded player, and defeated fifth seeded Kiki Bertens in the quarterfinal, third seeded Angelique Kerber and then the top seed Halep in the final to come away a deserved winner.
Fourth seeded Elina Svitolina was the other losing semifinalist, going to Halep, while Julia Goerges, Karolina Muchova and Barbora Strycova were the other losing quarterfinalists.
56 players were involved in the main singles draw of the 2018 edition and Petra Kvitova came away winner with a three-set win over the fourth seeded Garbine Muguruza in the final. Defending champion Karolina Pliskova bowed out of the tournament in round three.
What made Kvitova’s run to the final and the subsequent win even more special was she defeated the likes of Agnieszka Radwanska, Elina Svitolina, Julia Goerges and Caroline Wozniacki to make it to the final before her win over Muguruza.
Muguruza was aided by a semi-final walkover by Simona Halep who withdrew from the tournament because of an injury. Earlier, she had also beaten Caroline Garcia in her quarter-finals.
Top seeded Caroline Wozniacki was the other semi-finalist, who was taken out in three very tough sets by Kvitova.
