beIN Sports will broadcast the WTA 1000 Qatar TotalEnergies Open next week live from Doha’s Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex. The event will begin from this Sunday until February 17.
beIN will broadcast approximately seven-and-a-half hours of live coverage daily with Arabic commentary and studio analysis, as well as live tournament coverage with English commentary.
Fans will also be able to enjoy daily Arabic programming including 26-minute highlights episodes, daily mini-matches and a trio of five-minute fillers.
beIN’s coverage starts this Sunday with an hour-long preview show from 2:30pm, followed by on-court coverage from 3:30pm until 10pm. Presented by Areej Sleem, the first female Arab presenter to cover all four Grand Slam tournaments, the broadcaster’s coverage will also feature guest commentators including former tennis professionals such as Tunisia’s second-highest ranked female of all time Selima Sfar, Kuwait’s Adel al-Shatti, and Saudi Arabia’s Fahad al-Saad and Morocco’s Anass Lamrani.
This year’s WTA 1000 Qatar TotalEnergies Open will feature 11 Grand Slam winners, including two-time defending champion and World No 1 Iga Swiatek, as well as last month’s Australian Open winner Aryna Sabalenka, who won in Doha in 2020.
Arab No 1 Ons Jabeur, a two-time quarterfinalist in Doha, will also be in action as the Tunisian returns to a tournament, where she has enjoyed de facto home-court support in previous years.
