Qatar Total Open – Time for the Final

At 17:00 Greek time is expected to start the great final for the WTA Premier Tournament in Doha, Qatar.

On the one hand, Simona Halep, who is the undisputed favorite, wants to combine her 200th victory in tournaments’ main draw with her second title in Doha.

Against her will be found, the rookie in a WTA Premier tournament final, Elise Mertens. The 23 year old Belgian will try to repeat her compatriot Justine Henin’s triumph, who had won the title back in 2007.

In the previous two games between them, which took place last year, Halep won relatively easily. It will be the first time, however, that they will play on a hard surface, as last year’s games were held on clay (Rolan Garros and Mutua Madrid Open).

You can see in the following videos the victorious semifinals of the two finalists:
