The controversial topic is about Israeli Shahar Peer who is playing on the Arab courts. Shahar Peer has become the first Israeli tennis player to compete in the Gulf region.
Setting aside Arab-Israeli differences, Peer made a successful debut at the WTA Qatar Open on Monday by defeating Slovakia's Andreja Klepac 6-3, 6-4 in the first round.
"Everyone was very supportive" when she decided to go to Doha, Peer said.
"When I came here I was a little excited because I didn't know what to expect, just like every new tournament and every new place you go," she said after the match.
"I find the people are really nice here. I got a very warm welcome."
Peer said when she goes on the court "you don't think about politics, you just want to go and play tennis".
