Roger Federer will be looking to bounce back from a string of Grand Slam defeats in 2010 while his biggest rival, top-ranked Rafael Nadal, is hoping to resume the dominant form that saw him capture French Open, Wimbledon and US Open titles.

Spectators can expect to see much of the pair in 2011, starting with the season-opening Qatar Open in Doha which starts on Monday.

A taste of their long-running rivalry was also on display in Abu Dhabi Saturday, when Nadal edged Federer 7-6, 7-6 to defend his title at the invitational World Tennis Championships. Arriving in Doha, Federer said he saw Abu Dhabi and Doha as a chance to try out new shots, adding that he was looking forward to resuming his battles with Nadal.
