He’s won the doubles title here in Doha three times in six appearances. In 2014, Rafael Nadal finally captured the elusive Qatar ExxonMobil Open Singles title. His opponent, Gael Monfils was playing in his third Doha final in seven appearances; but down the stretch, Monfils couldn’t maintain the raw confidence in his shot-making to earn the falcon. Oddly enough, the previous two times Nadal and Monfils played on these courts, Monfils won. The final from Doha: Rafael Nadal def. Gael Monfil 6-1, 6-7(5), 6-2.
The Doubles Final featured the tournament’s #1-seeds Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares vs. Tomas Berdych and Jan Hajek. Though the Austrian and Brazilian were heavily favored, the Czechs pulled-off an easy straight sets win behind Tomas Berdych’s serve.
