Federer and Nadal Kick-Off New Season

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal played on a magic carpet in Doha to begin the Qatar ExxonMobil Open, which is the one of three tournaments that begin the season.

World number one Federer told the ATP World Tour “2009 was a memorable year for me on and off the court. I look forward to the new season and it is one of my goals to hold on to the No. 1 ranking position.  It was fun to play Rafa on yet another stage, we have had so many battles on a lot of different courts but this was the first time for anyone to play on a magic carpet!”

Federer and Nadal both played in an exhibition tournament last week, which Nadal won over Robin Soderling.

The first major tournament of the season, the Australian Open, begins on January 18th.
