  • Belgrade, Serbia – Novak Djokovic made another slow start and beat Karen Khachanov 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 on Saturday to reach the final of the Serbia Open.

    The top-ranked Serb returned from a set for the third straight match after hard-fought wins over Miomir Kekmanovic and Laslo Jere to reach their third final in their hometown tournament.

    The 20-time Grand Slam champion had previously won the Serbia Open in 2009 and 2011.

    Djokovic, who is bidding for his first title of the year, will face Andre Rublev in Sunday’s final. The second seeded Russian defeated Fabio Fognini 6-2, 6-2 in the second semi-final.

    Djokovic began his clay-court season with a surprise loss to Alejandro Davydovich Fokina at the Monte Carlo Masters last week, his first since being knocked out in the quarter-finals of the Dubai Championships in February. Dubai was his first tournament of the year when he was barred from playing at the Australian Open due to his unaffiliated condition, which also prevented him from playing the tournament in the United States last month.
