VENUE: Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Djokovic will take on Marseille winner and eighth seed Hurkacz for a place in the Dubai semifinals. Both players took similar routes to the last eight, surviving a third-set tiebreak in the opening round before a straight-set win in the second.



The 35-year-old Djokovic – the world’s top-ranked player – is now unbeaten in 14 matches this year. Earlier in the season, he won the Adelaide 1 and Australian Open titles. The latter triumph moved him level with Rafael Nadal (22) atop the all-time men’s singles Grand Slam title leaderboard.

Djokovic faced a stern test against qualifier Tomas Machak in the first round in Dubai. He dropped the second set and squandered a lead in the third before surviving a tiebreak.



He then beat Tallon Griekspoor in straight sets to reach the last eight at the Dubai Tennis Championships for the 13th time in as many appearances.

Meanwhile, 11th-ranked Hurkacz improved to 12-4 on the season following wins over Alexander Shevchenko and Pavel Kotov.

The reigning Marseille winner squandered two championship points before converting his third in the third-set tiebreak against Shevchenko. Hurkacz then extended his win streak to six matches by beating Kotov in straight sets.
