World tennis number one Novak Djokovic has opened his season with a 6-0, 6-3 win over David Ferrer in the semi finals of the Abu Dhabi exhibition tournament.

In the final Djokovic will play Spaniard Nicolas Almagro - a late replacement for Rafael Nadal, who postponed his return to action after a six-month injury layoff due to a stomach virus.

Almagro defeated Serbia's Janko Tipsarevic 2-6 7-6 6-2 in the other semi-final.
