Djokovic Secures Fourth Abu Dhabi Crown

He made his comeback at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi on Friday, but withdrew from his third-place play-off match to ensure he didn't push his body too far too soon.

1 fought past last year's victor Kevin Anderson 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 in Saturday's final.

Wimbledon and US Open champion Djokovic now heads to neighbouring Doha where he will be top seed at the Qatar Open starting on Monday.

Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation competes during his match against Dominic Thiem of Austria at the 2018 Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on December 29, 2018.

Anderson was on the same level with Novak in the opening 11 games but he failed to secure the tie break, getting broken at 15 following a forehand error while serving to stay in the set at 5-6, handing this part of the match to Djokovic who was now the favorite in the decider. They have shown they can challenge top three players for titles.

Novak Djokovic said he would be "lying" if overhauling Roger Federer's mark of 20 Grand Slam titles was not on his mind, but added on Saturday that it would be a great challenge to get there, especially with the sport's widely hyped young generation stepping up.

"A year ago here, I was still carrying the injury of the elbow that resulted in the surgery", Djokovic said.

Djokovic has lost just three times in the past six months, but all three defeats came against players aged 22 and under (Stefanos Tsitsipas in Toronto, Karen Khachanov in Paris and Alexander Zverev in London at the World Tour Finals). I think it was the best match point I've ever played!

Anderson who had stated before the Championship began that his primary goal was to play both Nadal and Djokovic to test his game, said: 'I played really good tennis over the last few days.

A right knee injury forced Nadal to retire from his US Open semifinal in early September - his last competitive match - and the 32-year-old Spaniard had ankle surgery at the start of November.

"It was a little bit of risk that we don't make it into the beginning of the season, but here we are, practising more or less hard and we are excited to start the new season", he said.
