The Qatar Open, currently known as Qatar ExxonMobil Open for sponsorship reasons, is an outdoor hard court event in Qatar belonging to the ATP 250 series.

The event is part of the Gulf Series of events that also features the Dubai event and a few WTA events. It's been held since 1993, with the venue being the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex since the start. It has a 7,000-capacity main court after the 2008 expansion.

It's been a hotspot for tennis players, as many use the Persian Gulf as their home base during the winter. Roger Federer famously prepared for each new season there, and he's actually the most successful tennis player in the event's history, having lifted the trophy three times.

A couple of players like Murray, Djokovic and Roberto Bautista Agut won the event two times, but Federer is the only one to win it three times. The first edition was won by Boris Becker in 1993, while the last one in 2023 was won by Daniil Medvedev, who defeated Andy Murray in the final.
