The world number one eventually triumphed 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, in a match lasting exactly two hours, twice as long as the Serb spent on court in his first round victory.

Djokovic is on course to meet Stan Wawrinka in the semi-finals in Doha after the Swiss also won again on Wednesday, beating Chile’s Nicolas Jarry 6-4, 7-6 (7/3).
