Djokovic outplays Federer to storm into the final in Abu Dhabi
What expected as a gruelling tussle, ended-up as a lop-sided match, when World No. 1 Novak Djokovic simply outplayed former World No. 1 Roger Federer in straight sets with a 6-2 6-1 scoreline and stormed into the final of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship.

This was their first-meeting since they enthralled everyone by playing tremendous tennis in the 2011 US Open semis and Novak Djokovic proved too good for Roger Federer. Well, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic looked absolutely relentless and unstoppable on Friday, as he humbled Federer in all departments of the game and won the match in straight sets with a 6-26-1 scoreline to storm into the final of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, a three-day exhibition tournament, being played here in Abu Dhabi.

With two breaks of serves, Novak Djokovic convincingly won the first-set. The Serbian kept the pressure on from the word "Go" and produced some blistering shots on both sides of the court to win the first-set in less than half an hour. The Serbian did not allow the Swiss to opt for counter-attack after making quick in-roads into the first-set and convincingly won the first-set.

Re-live the excitement of the match.

Everybody expected Federer to bring-forth some sort of resistance in the second-set, but he looked absolutely out-of-sorts and Djokovic raced to a 5-0 lead. The Serbian won nine successive games in the match and five in the second-set before Federer could win a single game in the second-set and avoided a bagel. Finally, Djokovic won the match in straight sets.

Now, Djokovic will take on the winner of another semi-final match, featuring World No. 2 Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer – in the title match tomorrow.
