The Qatar Total Open 2015 is part of the ATP World Tour – and every year attracts thousands of spectators to watch as world-class players compete for the prestigious title in the Qatari capital.

This year, top 10 world-ranked women’s tennis players including number five seed Ekaterina Makarova, number six seed Andrea Petkovic and number nine seed Carla Suárez Navarro competed in the 2015 tournament, which culminated in an exciting final between Safarova and Victoria Azarenka – a former world number one. As the biggest win of her career so far, this title will elevate the world number 15 seed Lucie Safarova to number 11.

As part of Qatar Airways’ sponsorship, this year the airline invited spectators to visit its pavilion at the event where they were offered the opportunity to have their photograph taken against a choice of backdrops (the Doha skyline, the Airbus A350 XWB or the Airbus A380) and then given a print of the photograph as a gift from the five-star airline.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker said:

Qatar Airways congratulates Lucie Safarova on her win at the Qatar Total Open 2015 and we look forward to welcoming her back to Doha next year to defend her title at this prestigious sporting event.’

During the tournament, Qatar Duty Free invited spectators to visit its dedicated pavilion and collect a 10% discount voucher, which they can redeem against their purchases the next time they shop at Qatar Duty Free in Hamad International Airport.

Qatar Duty Free Senior Vice President, Keith Hunter said:

Qatar Duty Free was delighted to be the official retail sponsor of the Qatar Total Open 2015. We look forward to welcoming all the spectators, who came to our pavilion and collected their 10% discount voucher during the tournament, at our Duty Free shops in Hamad International Airport the next time they travel.’
