The men's tennis calendar will begin in Doha as the 2020 Qatar Open commences from 6th January 2020. The Qatar Open will serve as the first ATP 250 tournament of the year and will feature some of the biggest names on the ATP circuit.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka is the top seed at Doha this year. He will face a stern challenge from the likes of Andrey Rublev, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Milos Raonic, who will all be looking to prevent the Swiss from clinching his first title at Doha. Wawrinka has not won a tournament since 2017 and would be looking to end the drought here in Qatar.
