The Singles Draw & Order of Play is out for Doha. Rafa will not be playing doubles & I think he won't for the entire 2012 season so he can be fresh for the Olympics!



Quotes:


“I’m happy to be here in Doha again. I would like to wish everyone here a Happy New Year. It feels fantastic to be back and I’m looking forward to the tournament,” said Nadal, after his arrival at the Doha International Airport.
The Spanish sensation revealed that his shoulder injury almost put his season opening tour into jeopardy.
“I’m better now. All December, I had the shoulder injury and till just over a week ago, I didn’t know if I will be able to play here.
“I somehow made it to Abu Dhabi and played two matches that helped me a little bit. I feel that my shoulder is better and that’s the most important thing,” said Nadal, who will be playing Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber in round one.
Despite taming Federer with ease, Nadal is well aware that it will be a different ball game altogether when it comes to the season opener.
“I haven’t spent much time on court and have just managed to practice a little bit. This will be a test for me as there are some good players out here. But I will see how it goes. As of now I’m feeling good,” affirmed Nadal.
