Where to watch Qatar TotalEnergies Open 2024 live stream, TV channel, prize money for WTA event


We’re 10 events into the 2024 WTA Tour, and there’s already been plenty of shocks along the way so far this year, as a selection of the world’s best female tennis players arrive in Doha for the Qatar TotalEnergies Open.

Surprise results reached new heights at the Australian Open in January, with only four seeded players making it past the round of 16, and world number one Iga Swiatek —who won both the 2022 and 2023 Qatar Open titles — being dumped out in the third round.

With the tournament having already gotten underway on Sunday, February 11, highly-seeded players such as Swiatek, US teenage sensation Coco Gauff and recent Abu Dhabi Open winner Elena Rykabina will all be looking to make good progress to the latter stages, with a handsome pot of prize money up for grabs in the Qatar capital.

The shock results haven’t stopped despite a change of scenery though, with British number one Emma Raducanu losing 0-6 6-7 to Ukraine’s Anhelina Kalinin in the first round. 11th seed Daria Kasatkina is the highest-ranked player to be eliminated so far, also losing in round one to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Culminating with the final on Saturday, February 17, the 22nd edition of the WTA Qatar TotalEnergies Open could see Swiatek become the first player to win the tournament three times. However, second seed Gauff will be right on her coat-tails, and after winning the doubles title here in 2023, as well as reaching the last four of the Australian Open, don’t discount the Floridian from making a sizeable impact.
