Iga Swiatek is the defending champion.

The first WTA 1000 event of the season at Doha, WTA Qatar Open 2024, begins on Sunday, February 11: World No. 1 and two-time defending champion Iga Swiatek is the top seed. Reigning US Open champion Coco Gauff, and Elena Rybakina – the 2022 Wimbledon title winner, round off the top three seeds at Doha. The top eight seeds have the benefit of opening-round byes.

Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka and Jessica Pegula will be missing the WTA 1000 event. Pegula pulled out due to a neck injury, and Sabalenka decided to skip the event in the Gulf country with the long WTA season in mind. It is the second consecutive year that Aryna Sabalenka, who won in 2020, has withdrawn from the WTA Qatar Open. Pegula, currently World No. 4, was the runner-up to Iga Swiatek last year (2023). It was Swiatek’s second straight win at Doha.

Former No.1 Naomi Osaka returns to Doha after five years, having last played in 2018, and will face France’s Caroline Garcia for the second time this season. Their first-round encounter will be a rematch of their meeting at the Australian Open, with Garcia winning 6-4, 7-6(2).

Swiatek, who returns to Doha, which has been a happy hunting ground for her in recent years. The Pole is in the second round, having received a first-round bye, and will begin her WTA Qatar Open 2024 campaign against either Sorana Cirstea or Sloane Stephens. The only other two-time champion in the event’s history is Victoria Azarenka, who won in 2012 and 2013.

Giving Swiatek company in the top quarter of the draw is Jelena Ostapenko. The Latvian heads into Doha, having captured her second title of the season in Linz. She won the Adelaide International singles title (2024), won the Brisbane doubles trophy (2024) and reached the doubles final at the Australian Open (2024). She will face either British wild card Emma Raducanu or unseeded Anhelina Kalinina in the second round.

Former champion Victoria Azarenka and 10th seed Beatriz Haddad Maia are lurking in Ostapenko’s section of the draw. Ostapenko could run into either player should she make the third round.

The fourth seed and twice Qatar Open quarterfinalist Ons Jabeur and seventh seed Maria Sakkari prop up the second quarter of the draw. Having benefited from a bye, Jabeur awaits Lesia Tsurenko or Turkish wild card Zeynep Sonmez in the second round. It will be either Naomi Osaka or Caroline Garcia who could be waiting for her in the round of 16.

Sakkari will face either Linda Noskova or American qualifier Bernarda Pera in the opening round. Barbora Krejcikova, with two back-to-back quarterfinal appearances in Melbourne and Abu Dhabi, is also in Sakkari’s part of the draw. The Czech is slated to go up against Anastasia Potapova in the first round.

Coco Gauff (2), Elena Rybakina(3), Zheng Qinwen(5), and Marketa Vondrousova(7) are the top seeds in the bottom half of the draw loaded with three Grand Slam winners. Gauff has reached the semifinal stage or better in her last six appearances, including the 2024 Australian Open. The 19-year-old American will square off against Katerina Siniakova or Donna Vekic in the round of 32.

Elena Rybakina, currently in the finals of the Abu Dhabi Open, will face either Varvara Gracheva or Zhu Lin – both unseded in Doha. Rybakina defeated World No.2 Aryna Sabalenka in the finals at Brisbane and won the tournament without dropping a set.

Qinwen Zheng is playing in her first tournament since making her top-ten debut on the back of her Australian Open run, where she reached her maiden Grand Slam finals. Zheng will play either Japanese qualifier Nao Hibino or Poland’s Magda Linette in the second round.
