Top seed Novak Djokovic cruised into the second round of the Dubai Tennis Championships on Monday.
He defeated Tunisian wildcard Malek Jaziri 6-1, 6-2 in an hour.
"Yeah, it’s a great way to start out the tournament," he said. "I miss playing here. I really enjoy it. I enjoy night sessions."
"I think I’ve done everything as well as I imagined it to be for the first match. Of course, there’s things that always can be improved, things that can be better. But I have to be satisfied with the performance."
Djokovic, who is chasing his fifth title, will now face Philipp Kohlschreiber, who overcame Egyptian wild card Mohamed Safwat.
