Qatar ExxonMobil Open. So, what is a tennis fanatic to do on an expected 18 hour layover at Hamad Airport in Doha the first week of January? High tail to the Qatar Tennis Open Doha, of course! Within minutes of landing in Doha, I had booked myself at the Ezdan Hotel and Suites and grabbed a taxi about 20 minutes from the airport. My easy to get and cheap tickets were practically on the court and I watched some amazing tennis!
