Twice a year, Andy Taylor travels to Doha, Qatar to host the Qatar Tennis Federation’s ATP-250 and WTA-Premier tournaments: The Qatar ExxonMobil Open and the Qatar Total Open. There, he emcees the draw ceremony, hosts the official Player’s Dinner, introduces the athletes during player walk-on, interviews the winners on-court for international broadcasters, gives-away thousands of dollars worth of electronics to fans, and hosts the championship trophy presentations.
In 2014, Bein Sports (France) profiled Andy during their coverage of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open. The video gives a glimpse of what life is like behind the scenes at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash compex. Andy has also played the role of “Titan the Robot” during the tournament, providing voiceover for the robot as he teased the upcoming Semifinal matches.
The Qatar ExxonMobil Open is a week-one event on the ATP World Tour, covering the first week of January, as players get back into competitive rhythm after the off-season. The Qatar Total Open follows the Australian Open, typically during weeks seven or eight on the WTA Tour.
