Djokovic wins Dubai tennis

A courtside camera helped young Serb Novak beat Ferrer to the Dhs1.4million…

He played a great game, but even Serbian finalist Novak Djokovic will admit that technology helped him to victory in Dubai yesterday.

The young gun beat Spaniard Ferrer in two sets 7-5, 6-3 but at match point the centre-line judge incorrectly ruled his shot wide. Luckily, the courtside camera was on Djokovic’s side.

It took Djokovic, ranked third in the world, 1 hour 37 minutes to break the spirited resistance of Ferrer, who beat former French No 1 Richard Gasquet in the semis to get through to his match against Djokovic.

In front of a capacity crowd of 5,000 at the Aviation Club, number 14 Ferrer eventually succumbed in one of Dubai’s most exciting games to date..
