Tennis player Novak Djokovic has also won his second match at the Dubai international tournament. The Serbian number 1 in the world defeated the Russian Karen Khachanov. Djokovic won in straight sets, 6-3 7-6 (2). The match lasted over an hour and a half.
Djokovic beat Italian Lorenzo Musetti in the first round. That was his first official appearance since December. In January, he wanted to participate in the Australian Open. However, the Serb was expelled from the country shortly before the tournament because he was not vaccinated against corona, an obligation in Australia.
Djokovic can be replaced at the top of the world rankings after two years this week. That will certainly happen if Daniil Medvedev wins the tournament against Acapulco.
