Novak Djokovic - No Problems in Dubai

A nice start from Novak today as he goes for 4 in a row in Dubai. A straight sets 6-4 6-2 win over Dutchman Stebe sets up a probable tie against Sergiy Stakhovsky.

Novak Djokovic opened the defence of his ATP Dubai crown with a comfortable 6-4 6-2 victory over world number 72 Cedrik-Marcel Stebe.

Djokovic, returning to action for the first time since his epic victory over Rafa Nadal in the final of the Australian Open last month, looked in impressive form when dominating for much of the match against his 21-year-old opponent.

However, Stebe gave a good account of himself against the world number one, and a man hoping to win in Dubai for the fourth year in succession.

Djokovic broke in the opening game of the first set and had little trouble on his own serve when closing out the set with ease.

Stebe initially offered more resistance in the second set but Djokovic wore him down towards the end and broke twice in a row before serving out the match in accomplished fashion.
