The Qatar Open presents a major opportunity for some of the world's top players to close the gap at the top of the WTA Rankings.


Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka is absent from Qatar, leaving the door open for Iga Swiatek to rebuild her lead at the top of the charts.

Swiatek is top seed in the Middle East, closely tailed by No.2 seed Coco Gauff, who underperformed in the WTA 1000 events last season.

If the American can punch in a big display in Doha, she could find herself cruising towards the summit ahead of a crucial few months of the season.

Elena Rybakina, Ons Jabeur and Zheng Qinwen make up the top five seeds and will each be determined to press on in 2024.
