On January 11th 2020, tennis player Andrey Rublev won the title for the Exxon Mobil Open 2020 which was held from January 6th January to 11th January 2020. H.E. President of Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al-Thani on Saturday crowned Andrey Rublev, winner of Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2020 tennis tournament.
Rublev claimed the title after defeating Corentin Moutet 6-2 7-6 (7-3) in the one-hour-27-minutes final match, he did not drop a single set throughout the tournament and after taking a 6-1 lead in the second-set tie-break against Moutet.
Moutet beat Milos Raonic in the second round and on Friday overcame Fernando Verdasco and top seed Stan Wawrinka in three sets to reach his first final at this level. However, getting the better of Rublev – the runner-up in 2018 – proved too much of a challenge, with the promising 22-year-old kicking off his season by claiming a third ATP Tour title of his career that will send him into the top 20 for the first time.
