DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) Novak Djokovic saved three consecutive match points to beat Gael Monfils on Friday and set up a Dubai Championships final showdown against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Monfils led 6-3 in the second-set tiebreaker but Djokovic saved all three match points as his forehand forced errors.
Djokovic converted his eighth set point when Monfils double-faulted. He cruised the rest of the way, winning 2-6, 7-6 (8), 6-1.
