2015 Qatar Total Open

The 2015 Qatar Total Open Champion

Hello Lucie Safarova. What a crappy way to start 2015: Two crummy, three-set losses in Sydney and the Australian Open; yet what an amazing way to spend the last month:

  • First Grand Slam doubles title at the Australian Open
  • Quarterfinalist at Antwerp
  • Quarterfinalist at Dubai
  • Win your 6th career singles title in Doha
  • Win your first career Premier level event
  • Reach a career-high ranking of #11 in the world

Sure Victoria Azarenka was in agony after an intense battle with Venus Williams 24-hours prior, but Lucie has proven that – healthy – she has what it takes to be a consistent top-10 SINGLES player.

In the Doubles Championship match, Americans Abigail Spears and Racquel Kops-Jones earned their 11th WTA Doubles Title together, taking down Doha favorite Sania Mirza and half of last year’s championship team Su-Wei Hsieh.
