Matthieu Bouyer, the Country Chair and Managing Director of TotalEnergies Qatar, congratulated the Qatar Tennis, Squash and Badminton Federation (QTF) and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) for the successful conclusion of the Qatar TotalEnergies Open (QTO). The six-day tournament, held from February 13 to 18, saw the singles defending champion Iga Swiatek of Poland and the doubles defending champions Cori “Coco” Gauff and Jessica Pegula of the USA win titles for a second year in a row.
Bouyer highlighted the tournament’s evolution from a Tier 3 tournament to one of the top tournaments in the players’ agenda. He added that the QTO 2023 edition was a success with most of the top 20 players participating this year. TotalEnergies has been a title sponsor of the QTO since its first edition in 2001, and Bouyer emphasized the company’s commitment to encouraging participation in sports, especially among the youth.
The QTO also served as a platform for TotalEnergies to promote its TAMKEEN program, which aims to foster knowledge-sharing and human development initiatives and to promote local cultural and artistic talent in Qatar. The company organized various events, including an ecological awareness session for young kids on plastic pollution and brainstorming sessions on mitigating the challenge. TotalEnergies also showcased various forms of energy developed within the company and how it places sustainability at the heart of its strategy, projects, and operations.
