Dubai - Novak Djokovic continued his hot early season form on Monday after cruising past Tunisian wild card Malek Jaziri 6-1, 6-2 to power into the second round of the Dubai Championships.

The world number one crashed seven aces past Jaziri in a match that lasted little more than an hour.

"I'm very pleased with how I played. I've not played (here since 2016), I've missed this court and the city," said Djokovic.

The world number 17, who lives in the emirate, twice hit back from a break down in the opening set before cruising through the second.
