Doha 2011 Arab Games – Day-1 of Tennis

The Opening Ceremonies for the Doha 2011 Arab Games here in Qatar aren’t until Friday evening; however the Team Competition has already begun with Tennis at Khalifa Stadium.

Today, on center court – we watched the guys from Kuwait crush Qatar; then witnessed a blood bath where Egypt walked all over the team from Iraq. Out of two singles and one doubles match, Iraq only won a single game.

Those teams on the Men’s side who won points today in round robin play include:

  • Egypt…defeated Jordan (3-0)
  • Morocco…defeated Lebanon (2-1)
  • Kuwait…deafeated Qatar (3-0)
  • Iraq…defeated Libya (2-1)
  • United Arab Emirates…defeated Sudan (3-0)

Back at Khalifa Stadium for more Team Tennis tomorrow morning starting at 10:00am.
