Russian Daniel Medvedev, ranked eighth in the world, was crowned the Qatar ExxonMobil Open Tennis Championship 2023 in its 31st edition, after defeating Britain’s Andy Murray, in two sets, in the final match that took place, on Saturday, on the main court of the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex.
Medvedev, seeded third in the tournament, defeated Murray, the former world number one and now 70, 6-4, 6-4, after a match that lasted an hour and 46 minutes.
The title is the first for the 27-year-old Russian player in the Qatar Championship and the 17th in his professional career, including one major title at the US Open in 2021.
On the other hand, Murray failed to achieve his third title in Qatar after 2008 and 2009, thus equalizing Swiss legend Roger Federer, who won the Qatar Championship three times in 2005, 2006 and 2011.
In conclusion, Nasser Al-Khulaifi, President of the Qatar Tennis, Squash and Badminton Federation, handed over the championship cup to the Russian Medvedev, and Murray handed over the second place award, in the presence of Karim Al-Alami, the tournament director.
