The Frenchman showed up in several events of Doha. in 2006, in 2013 where he defeated Nikolay Davydenko of Russia in the final, in 2014 and finally in 2105 where he reached the quarterfinals losing to the Czech Tomas Berdych.

The Doha tournament is scheduled to go through January 4th to 9th, 2015 with the participation of great tennis stars like the world no. 1 Novak Djokovic, Spaniard Rafael Nadal, Tomas Berdych and defending Champion David Ferrer.
