Abu Dhabi – World No.1 Novak Djokovic opened his season with an impressive 6-0, 6-3 win over David Ferrer in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship exhibition tournament on Friday.

The Serb raced away with the first set of the semifinal clash before the Spaniard managed to grab an early break in the second.

Ferrer served to go 3-1 up, but could not convert and it was Djokovic who once again took over the reins of what was a low-key match.

In the final he will play against either fellow Serb Janko Tipsarevic or Spaniard Nicolas Almagro - a late replacement for Rafael Nadal who postponed his return to action after a six-month injury layoff due to a stomach virus. – Sapa-AFP
