Semi-final encounter at the 2019 Mubadala World Tennis Championship has brought an interesting clash between Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The Greek recorded a 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4 win at the International Tennis Centre at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi on Friday.

This was the first match for the Serbian star in preparation for the new tennis season.

Making his debut in Abu Dhabi in 2011, Djokovic has never lost a match at the MWTC before. He won the title three years in a row from 2011-2013, and in 2018.

In the second match of the day, Rafael Nadal defeated Karen Khachanov.

Novak will face the Russian in the third-place play-off, scheduled on Saturday at 17:00 local time (14:00 CET).
