Our 2023 ATP Qatar Open Predictions & Picks
The ATP Qatar Open is one of the most prestigious ATP 250s on the calendar having been voted as the best in that category many times. So whoever wins it this year will join a gaudy list that features the likes of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal.
Andy Murray is in contention this week although the Scotsman is unseeded and will potentially be thrown into another tough section of the draw jostling with the top seeds.
The Rotterdam contingent will be in full voice. Those that exited the tournament early will be looking to hit their stride. Felix Auger-Aliassime in particular will be looking to make up for lost points in the Netherlands.
Daniil Medvedev has also found his groove as he bounced back from a disappointing showing in Australia by reaching the semifinal in Rotterdam (at the time of writing). We reckon the Russian could offer decent value in the outright market.
