Novak Djokovic faces a tricky test at the Dubai Championships as he plays veteran German Philipp Kohlschreiber in the second round. At Indian Wells last year, Djokovic produced an error-strewn display and Kohlschreiber took full advantage to stun the Serbian.
This week Djokovic is targeting a fifth title in Dubai and says he is well aware of the threat posed by Kohlschreiber
“I am aware of what he is capable of,” Djokovic said.
“I lost to him in straight sets in Indian Wells last year. He actually likes playing top players on a big stage.
“He has lots of experience. He’s very fit. He keeps on playing even at that age on a high level. I certainly will not underestimate him, I will prepare myself.”
