In March, Filus played in WTT Doha. In the WTT Star Contender event, he upset Jang Woojin in the round of 32,[3] Jun Mizutani in the round of 16, Lin Yun-Ju in the quarter-finals, and Darko Jorgić in the semi-finals en route to an impressive surprise run to the finals.[4] He lost to Tomokazu Harimoto 4-2 in the finals.[5]
