Czech’s Karolina Pliskova and Garbine Muguruza of Spain are also among 32 singles players facing off in the six-day event, according to the Qatar Tennis Federation.
It remains unclear how the weather will affect play this week, as forecasters are warning of high winds and rainy conditions.
But tickets are still on sale for those who wish to check out the tournament, which is being held at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex.
They start at QR25 and go up to QR350 per person.
Who’s going? Thoughts?
