Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex is an established venue on the ATP men's professional tennis tour.
The Qatar Open launches the tennis year and, since 1993 when Boris Becker won the inaugural title, it has attracted the world's top players to its hard courts.

The original centre court holds 4,106 spectators and remains unaltered. For the 15th Asian Games, eight new training courts have been built, as well as four squash courts, with seating for more than 1,000 represenatatives, and new media and players' facilities.

Hopefully Japan will win some medals in the tennis. I would have thought Aiko but she has lost Akgul and Erika Takao recently, maybe Akiko could do some damage...

i think hsieh looks cute in her photo... Jie looks good too :D
Shame about TianTian, she could have made a few upsets! Good luck in doubles to TianTian and Ting though, thy probably need it unless the tactical training they were talking about has worked :banana:
