Djokovic wins Dubai Champs but cleary off put by rain delay in final

8:47 am on 1 March 2010

The World number two Novak Djokovic overcame a racket-smashing tantrum and a day-long rain delay to retain his Dubai Tennis Championship crown by beating Russia's Mikhail Youzhny 7-5 5-7 6-3.

A storm halted play on Saturday with Djokovic a set and a break up.

Although Djokovic ended up winning the game the Serb was visibly frustrated throughout the match and was clearly rattled by the postponement.
