2011 Qatar ExxonMobil Tennis Tournament

Tennis is Life –

Well not quite, but yes in a way. Ever since I move to Qatar, more than 5 years ago, I never missed any single tournament. I always go and see the tournament. I enjoy being at the tennis stadium, be it watching a match, on the outside court or on the main grand stand. I also enjoy the atmosphere, the antic of the supporters, the entertainment that looks like accidental performers even though the actual fact was the they were appointed by the organiser.

This time I will not write anything about the match, but just post the photos I took from and around the tennis court, so that you could also feel the atmosphere.

Car decoration?

Normally Arab people don’t like to be photographs, but this one does….

accidental performer... or that's the idea
