After Riyadh, it is Doha's turn. Daniel Windahl and José Solano Marmolejo once again find themselves facing Juan Lebron and Ale Galan. After their triumph in Saudi Arabia, here they are in Qatar for the start of the Ooredoo Qatar Major, once again against the same opponents. The vagaries of the draw placed Windahl (52nd in the FIP ranking) and Marmolejo (82nd) ​​in the Spaniards' zone.

The first day of the first Major of the year was marked by many hard-fought matches ending in the third set: Diego Gil and Jesus Moya defeated José Antonio Diestro and Javi Leal, the 15th seed. Campagnolo/Gutierrez and Moyano/Gil are already saying goodbye to Qatar. This is also the case for Nachi Sager and Salva Oria, who reached the semi-finals in Riyadh: the two Spaniards were beaten 6-2 1-6 6-2 by Denis Perino and Alex Chozas, who took a set in Coello/Tapia during the first tournament of the year. Miguel Lamperti / José Jimenez passes against Cepero / Sanchez.

Paula Josemaria and Ari Sanchez will face Ariadna Cañellas Rodero and Teresa Navarro Lopez-Barajas.

After losing the final in Saudi, Delfina Brea and Bea Gonzalez (2) will make their debut against Martina Fassio Goyenche and Marta Borrero.

The reigning Doha Major champions, Franco Stupaczuk and Martin Di Nenno (3), will open the program on center court against Inigo Jofre and Luis Hernandez Quesada, followed by the “first” of Gemma Triay and Claudia Fernandez (3) against the French duo Alix Collombon and Jessica Ginier Barbier.
