Gael Monfils of France emerged victorious at the 2018 Qatar ExxonMobil Tennis Open after defeating Russian Andrey Rublev 6-2, 6-3 to win the men's singles championship final. This is Monfils’ seventh ATP title and the first time he has won the Qatar event. He finished runner-up on three different occasions.
The 31-year-old Monfils played brilliant tennis against his 20-year-old opponent. While Monfils is seen as a veteran of the tour, Rublev is recognized as one of the great prospects in the game. In 2017, Monfils failed to win an ATP Tour event, while Rublev collected one trophy.
Monfils often shows sparks of genius in his play but can become erratic in crucial matches. This win should help him gain confidence for the upcoming Australian Open in Melbourne.
