DUBAI, February 29: Novak Djokovic won the Dubai Championships for the fifth time on Saturday, defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3, 6-4.
The world number one remains undefeated 18-0 this season as he ended an eight-match win streak for his Greek opponent, champion last weekend in Marseille.
Djokovic, with three titles including the inaugural ATP Cup with Serbia in 2020, put a winner into the corner on match point. “It was close in both sets,” Djokovic said. “A few points decided it, I’ve had a great week.
“I’m most proud of my consistency this week, especially on shots from the baseline.” (AFP)
