Djokovic wins Qatar Open ti­tle

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

World num­ber one No­vak Djokovic claimed his first ti­tle of the year with an im­pres­sive 6-1 6-2 win over Rafael Nadal in the Qatar Open.

The Serb con­tin­ued his re­cent dom­i­nance of the 14-time Grand Slam win­ner with a ninth vic­tory in 10 meet­ings - the last five in straight sets.

The 28-year-old broke twice in both sets as Nadal, 29, had no an­swer to the pace and power of his ground­strokes.

Djokovic is pre­par­ing to de­fend his Aus­tralian Open ti­tle from 18 Jan­uary.
