We’re almost willing to make the statement that February is the best month in 2018.

With all the amazing outdoor festivals, theatre shows, cultural activities and art exhibitions, there’s so much to do and we’re rather excited for the Qatar Total Open 2018, which also takes place this month.

The 16th edition of this professional women’s tennis tournament, which is played on hard courts, is a WTA Premier 5 tournament on the 2018 WTA Tour.

World No. 1 and 2014 champion Simona Halep of Romania is leading a galaxy of star players, which also includes defending champion Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, Garbine Muguruza of Spain, Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki and former World No. 1 Angelique Kerber of Germany. And you’ll have the opportunity to see them all at the tournament.

Last year, Pliskova beat Wozniacki in the Qatar Open final to win her second title of 2017.

Being one of the most prestigious events in the world, the Qatar Total Open 2018 is a highlight in the country’s sporting calendar and is also a treat for international fans of women’s tennis. So really, there’s no excuse to miss out on this tournament. It’s a huge event on the global tennis calendar and a great opportunity to see the world’s greats on our soil. Book your tickets now.
