The world No. 24 won the Qatar Open in Doha overnight, beating Berdych in three sets in a match that lasted two hours.

The set saw some astonishing tennis from both the players, the drop shots, down the line shots, volleys and a few long rallies all which kept the full house entertained.

Djokovic was in cruise control in the first set, winning 6-3, and took an early break in the second.

But Agut, victor of last year's Dubai Championships, lost only five points on his serve in the final set and wrapped up the contest on his first match point.

After losing the first set on Friday evening, the seventh-seeded Spaniard prevailed in the tie-break to take the second set and began the third by breaking Djokovic's serve, reports Efe news. The Serbian has been nearly unbeatable on hard courts over the last six months, but Bautista-Agut trumped him in a tactical masterclass.
