Dubai, Feb 29 (IANS) Serbian world No. 1 Novak Djokovic saved three consecutive match points against Frenchman Gael Monfils to reach the finals of the Dubai Tennis Championships.
On Friday, Djokovic defeated Monfils 2-6, 7-6 (10-8), 6-1 in the semi-final and will face rising star Stefanos Tsitsipas for the title.
"It's like being on the edge of a cliff," said Djokovic about facing match points as per the ATP Tour website.
"You know there is no way back so you have to jump over and try to find a way to survive I guess and pray for the best and believe that you can make it, that there is something that is going to help you.
"That's one of the things that I feel at the moment. Okay, one point away, one shot away. There is no going back. This is it. I accept the situation and try to make the most out of it," he added.
Djokovic is tied at 2-2 in his Head2Head series Tsitsipas, who will be competing in his second straight championship match in Dubai.
