Novak Djokovic Quits Dubai Quarterfinal, Ends 17-Finals Streak


World number one Novak Djokovic quit the Dubai Tennis Championships after dropping the first set of his quarterfinal against Feliciano Lopez yesterday, ending his stunning streak of 17 successive finals.

The top-seeded Serb lost the opener 6-3 during which he appeared to complain about a problem with his right eye.

The retirement represents the first time the 28-year-old has failed to make a final since Doha in January 2015.
